Tonight's Forecast: The big story tonight won't be weather related, but instead will be a reminder to advance any non-automated clocks ahead by one hour when you go to bed as we "spring forward" at 2 am. Weather wise, it will be a fairly mild night, with lows in Southern Colorado cooling down to the 20s, 30s and 40s.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 38; High: 64. Sunday's forecast will be a tad cooler, but still unseasonably warm for early March. A weak disturbance coming out of the mountains brings a chance for showers to the area late in the day. Wind gusts to 35 mph Sunday night.

PUEBLO: Low: 38; High: 71. The 70s are sticking around on Sunday, with a slight chance of light rain pushing into Pueblo County late in the afternoon and evening. Wind gusts to 35 mph Sunday night.

CANON CITY: Low: 40; High: 66. Spring-like weather will continue on Sunday. During the day we'll see partly cloudy skies, with a slight chance of showers by the evening.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 32 High: 53. Partly to mostly cloudy skies on Sunday, with a few showers and thunderstorms for the afternoon. A changeover to snow is possible at night as temperatures cool.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 30s; High: 50s. Dry skies early Sunday with increasing showers and possible thunderstorms for the late afternoon and evening hours. Wind gusts to 35 mph Sunday night.

PLAINS: Low: 30s/40s; High: 60s/70s. Partly sunny and breezy on Sunday, with highs returning to the 70s in most areas. A slight chance of rain is possible for the late afternoon and evening hours.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 30s; High: 50s/60s. Breezy and partly cloudy to close out the weekend, with a slight chance of rain for the late afternoon and evening hours.

Extended Outlook: After a warm weekend, we'll see a slight cool down on Monday followed by another boost in temperatures for next Tuesday and Wednesday. It will also be windy at times early next week, with near critical fire weather conditions out in the Plains. A weather pattern shift late next week could bring several rounds of rain and snow to Southern Colorado beginning next Thursday or Friday.
