Tonight's Forecast:
After the warmest day of 2021 so far, strong and gusty winds will be the big story tonight across Southern Colorado as a strong cold front pushes through the area. A High Wind Warning will go into effect across western El Paso County, Teller County and the far east Plains at 2 am. Gusts in these areas could top 65-75 mph.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 29; High: 40. Thursday will be all about the wind, with peak gusts to 45 mph. In addition to the wind, we'll also see clearing skies and cooler highs across the region.

PUEBLO: Low: 27; High: 47. Partly cloudy skies early will give way to a sunny, cooler and windy afternoon. Peak wind gusts to 40 mph will be possible.

CANON CITY: Low: 30; High: 46. Wednesday's mild 60s will give way to highs only in the 40s on Thursday. Along with the cool down will come more strong winds, with peak gusts to 35 mph.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 21; High: 32. Windy and colder across Teller County on Thursday. A High Wind Warning will go into effect at 2 am, and continue through 11 am. Peak gusts to 65 mph will be possible.

PLAINS: Low: 20s/30s; High: 40s. Locally, a High Wind Warning has been issued for Prowers and Kiowa counties, and for areas north to the Wyoming border. These spots could see gusts as high as 65-75 mph. Lesser wind gusts will impact areas closer to I-25.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 20s; High: 40s. Windy and cooler on Thursday. Highs will only warm into the 40s, with peak wind gusts to 35 mph.

Extended Outlook:
Friday will be a tad warmer, but still cold enough for a windy and chilly end to the week. A disturbance will bring snow to the mountains on Saturday, but will miss most of us. Teller County could see some snow flurries Saturday, but accumulating snowfall is not expected. We're watching for a better chance for snow late Monday and Tuesday, but it's still a ways out to pinpoint storm specifics, so stay tuned.
