Tonight's Forecast:
A powerful cold front will blast through Southern Colorado late tonight with strong winds, but very little moisture. The leading edge of the front is expected to reach the Palmer Divide shortly after midnight. As the front dives farther south through early Sunday morning, gusts of 35 to 45 mph will be possible. Because of the wind, overnight lows won't be as cold as last night.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 25; High: 39. Sunday will be a much colder day, with a lot of wind expected through the middle of the afternoon. Peak wind gusts in the Springs could top 40 mph.

PUEBLO: Low: 24; High: 44. Thanks to a cold front that arrives before sunrise, Sunday's forecast in Pueblo County will be much cooler and windier compared to what we saw on Saturday.

CANON CITY: Low: 28; High: 43. Breezy and cooler on Sunday, with highs expected to barely warm into the lower 40s.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 16; High: 31. Cold on Sunday, with gusty north winds making the actual air temp feel even colder that what the thermometer will say. Bundle up if you have to be outside!

TRI-LAKES: Low: 20s; High: 30s. Strong and gusty winds will push into northern El Paso County late tonight, and the wind will remain gusty at times through the day on Sunday. In addition to the wind, Sunday will be much colder across the area.

PLAINS: Low: 20s; High: 40s. Sunday will be much colder and pretty windy across the Plains. Gusts during the day could top 40 to 45 mph.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 20s; High: 30s. Windy, dry and cooler on Sunday. Highs will only warm into the upper 30s from Walsenburg to Trinidad.

MOUNTAINS: Low: 0s/10s; High: 10s/20s. Cold and blustery on Sunday for the mountain regions. With strong breezes comes the potential for negative wind chill values and dangerous cold at times in the higher elevations.

Extended Outlook:
After Sunday's cold and blustery weather, a nicer weather day is expected on Monday as highs warm over Southern Colorado and the wind weakens. Another system drops in from the northern Plains on Tuesday. This cold front will drop temperatures in a big way by the middle of next week, and bring more strong wind to the News 5 viewing area, as well as snow showers to some areas late Tuesday and Wednesday.
