Decreasing winds this evening should allow for a Red Flag Warning for the Upper Arkansas River Valley to expire by 7 pm. Eastern counties could once again see areas of low clouds and fog develop as a frontal boundary near the Kansas state line pulls in some moisture from the south. Otherwise, we're looking at a quiet and cool night across Southern Colorado.
COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 39; High: 75. Fair weather clouds and warm highs on Tuesday across the Pikes Peak Region. This should be our warmest day of the week, although it will still be quite warm through Thursday.
PUEBLO: Low: 35; High: 80. Warm, dry and breezy on Tuesday. Highs will rebound nicely, topping out in the upper 70s to lower 80s.
CANON CITY: Low: 44; High: 78. Another warm October day is on tap for our Tuesday. Strong westerly breezes are expected by the afternoon, especially for areas west of Canon City.
WOODLAND PARK: Low: 38; High: 67. Dry and mild on Tuesday, with temperatures warming up nicely across Teller County. It will be breezy during the afternoon, with westerly winds 10-15 mph.
TRI-LAKES: Low: 30s; High: 70s. Warm and breezy on Tuesday, with a mix of sun and clouds across northern El Paso County. Highs will top out in the lower 70s.
PLAINS: Low: 30s; High: 70s/80s. Areas of low clouds and fog should burn off pretty early in the day, allowing for much more sunshine and warmer highs on Tuesday.
WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 40s; High: 70s/80s. Warm, dry and breezy on Tuesday, with highs well above average for this time of the year.
With a warm and breezy mid-week forecast, fire danger levels will remain elevated over the next couple of days. Stronger winds and lower relative humidity on Thursday are likely to prompt Red Flag Warnings for a large part of Southern Colorado. A Thursday night cold front will drop highs by 25-35 degrees on Friday, and set the stage for our first snowfall of the month late this weekend and early next week.
