Extended outlook forecast:
Valentine's Day will be a warm one across Southern Colorado, with highs across the Plains expected to warm into the 50s and lower 60s. Increasing southwesterly winds on Tuesday will further the warm-up, with a few locations possibly cracking into the lower 70s. The wind will also bring the potential for high fire danger to the Plains on Tuesday out ahead of our next storm. The exact details of next week's storm still needs to be ironed out, but what looks certain is a colder and unsettled period of weather from late Tuesday night through early Thursday morning. Impacts from moderate snow and ice are expected most of the day Wednesday.
