Tonight's Forecast: Scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to move off of the mountains and into the adjacent Plains this evening. A few stronger storms will be possible, and an isolated severe storm cannot be ruled out for the southern I-25 corridor and the southeast Plains.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 45; High: 76. A warmer end to the weekend, with highs topping out in the middle to upper 70s. A few showers will be possible late in the afternoon and into the evening.

PUEBLO: Low: 51; High: 82. Warmer temperatures will make for a nice end to the weekend in Pueblo. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible during the afternoon and evening hours.

CANON CITY: Low: 51; High: 80. Sunday's forecast will be nice and warm, with spotty afternoon and evening showers driven by the warmth.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 38; High: 68. Mild weather, with dry skies early giving way to scattered afternoon and evening thundershowers.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 40s; High: 60s/70s. Sunday's weather will be nice and mild. A mix of sun and clouds early will give way to spotty afternoon and evening showers.

PLAINS: Low: 40s/50s; High: 70s/80s. Cloudy skies early will turn mostly sunny by the afternoon as temperatures really warm up. Isolated showers will be possible across the Plains by Sunday evening.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 40s; High: 80s. Pleasant morning lows will give way to warm daytime highs, with a few scattered showers and thunderstorms possible by late Sunday afternoon and evening.

Extended Outlook: Next week's forecast will bring hot highs and dry skies to Southern Colorado as a strong ridge of high pressure builds over the Centennial State. This anticipated change in the weather pattern has already prompted a Fire Weather Watch for a large portion of Southern Colorado on Monday. Additional days with high fire danger will be possible throughout the week with little to no rain in sight most days.
