Extended outlook forecast:
Stronger westerly downslope flow tomorrow will bring high temperatures nearly 20 degrees above the average on Tuesday! Gusts could be in the 30 to 45 mph range in gap flow areas like near Canon City, Walsenburg, and Colorado City, but we will stay dry.
A quick moving storm system on Wednesday will bring colder air with a small chance for rain and snow showers. Most of the rain and snow will stay in the mountains, but locally we could see an inch or less in higher elevations of the Pikes Peak Region.
