Tonight's Forecast:
A frontal boundary over the far east Plains may bring a few thunderstorms to our eastern counties early this evening. Otherwise, we'll see decreasing clouds late this evening across Southern Colorado and near seasonal overnight lows. It will be coldest in our mountain valleys as the dry airmass that's currently in place will allow for overnight lows to fall into the 30s and 40s.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 58; High: 93. A comfortable morning will give way to a hot and dry afternoon. A few dry thunderstorms may develop by late afternoon, but rain is not likely across the Pikes Peak Region.

PUEBLO: Low: 57; High: 100. Here we go again Pueblo! Triple digits and dry skies are back in your forecast for the end of the weekend.

CANON CITY: Low: 62; High: 97. Hot and dry weather will continue on Sunday, with highs soaring back into the 90s thanks to warm downslope breezes.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 51; High: 83. We'll see a warm end to the weekend over Teller County. While rain is not likely on Sunday, high based thunderstorms may develop by the afternoon, which could bring high winds and dry lightning to areas where storms form.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 50s; High: 80s/90s. Morning sunshine will give way to a partly to mostly cloudy afternoon over northern El Paso County, with another hot summer day on tap.

PLAINS: Low: 60s; High: 90s/100s. Bright and dry on Sunday, with highs once again soaring back into the 90s and 100s. Rain is not likely until early next week.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 50s/60s; High: 90s. Hot and generally dry on Sunday, with a very small chance for an afternoon shower or thunderstorms. Better chances for rain will stay over the mountains.

Extended Outlook:
A cold front will move into Southern Colorado early next week, which will bring more moisture and instability into our forecast. Precipitation on Monday should still be fairly light across the region, but with slightly better odds that we'll at least get wet after such a dry weekend. The cold front will also cool temperatures by a good 4 to 8 degrees early next week. Beyond next Tuesday, our extended forecast will once again turn hot and dry.
