Tonight’s Forecast: Clear skies and a dry airmass will lead to seasonably cold temperatures tonight in Southern Colorado. Winds will be light, with overnight lows cooling off into the 20s and 30s.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low - 32; High - 74. Near freezing temperatures Wednesday morning will moderate well into the 70s during the day under mostly sunny skies. High fire danger is likely to return on Thursday.

PUEBLO: Low - 29; High - 79. Grab a heavy coat in the morning and dress in layers. The afternoon high of nearly 80 degrees could be as much as 50 degrees warmer than the morning low.

CANON CITY: Low - 34; High - 77. Bright, breezy and very warm on Wednesday. West winds during the day around 10-15 mph.

WOODLAND PARK: Low - 25; High - 66. A cold morning will give way to a bright and mild afternoon. Highs will be much warmer than what we saw on Tuesday.

TRI-LAKES: Low - 30s; High - 70s. High pressure is back, and so is another day with unseasonably warm temperatures. Highs around the Tri-Lakes will warm into the 70s.

PLAINS: Low - 30s; High - 70s. Sunshine will bring a dose of warmer weather on Wednesday. Lows will start out in the 30s, with highs in the 70s.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low - 30s; High - 70s. No sign of rain or snow here. Instead, we'll see a bright, breezy and warm afternoon.

Extended Outlook: By Thursday, highs will rebound into the 70s and 80s. A Fire Weather Watch likely gets upgraded to a Red Flag Warning on Thursday for gusty winds and low relative humidity, and includes much of Southern Colorado. Cooler weather returns this weekend, along with stronger wind. The long range forecast looks drier than yesterday, but still some precipitation chances exist for late Friday and Sunday. No need to cancel your plans at this point. Stay tuned for further details from the First Alert5 team.
