Tonight's Forecast:
A quiet evening will prevail over Southern Colorado, with increasing high clouds expected as we head into Monday morning. Overnight lows will cool down to the 10s and 20s, with the exception of the San Luis Valley, where single digits and negative lows will be possible.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 22; High: 56. In spite of a much cloudier day on Monday, the first day of February will be a dry and mild one across the Pikes Region as highs warm into the middle 50s.

PUEBLO: Low: 18; High: 58. Monday's weather will be more on the overcast side than what we saw this past weekend, but warmer as highs top out in the upper 50s.

CANON CITY: Low: 26; High: 57. Mostly cloudy skies will keep the sunshine away most of the day on Monday. In spite of the cloud cover, highs will be nearly 10 degrees warmer than Sunday.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 20; High: 50. February will begin like a lamb across Teller County. Even without much sunshine, highs will warm into the upper 40s and lower 50s.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 20s; High: 50s. A mild start to February for northern El Paso County, and it will only get warmer with high pressure peaking in strength around mid-week.

PLAINS: Low: 10s/20s; High: 50s/60s. We'll see a mostly sunny start to the day across the Plains, with increasing clouds expected throughout the afternoon. Highs will be above average for this time of the year.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 20s; High: 50s. Mild highs on Monday across the far southern part of our state, with increasing clouds and mild highs by mid-afternoon.

MOUNTAINS: Low: 10s/20s; High: 30s/40s. Cloudy skies on Monday for the higher elevations, but snow is not expected to fall until later in the week.

Extended Outlook:
The clouds will clear out by Tuesday, with highs even warmer for Groundhog Day. The warm-up will continue through Wednesday as our next winter storm pushes snow into the mountains and wind into the Plains. Elevated fire weather conditions will be possible Wednesday east of the mountains before a cold front shakes things up early Thursday. Behind the front, we'll see a much colder day on Thursday, with light snow likely.
