Tonight's Forecast:
It will be breezy at times this evening from the Pikes Peak Region to the Palmer Divide to the eastern Plains, with gusts to 25 mph. Other than the winds, it will be a cold night across Southern Colorado, with the coldest air expected for the mountains and mountain valleys.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 30; High: 63. Much like what we saw this past weekend, our current warm spell will deliver more unseasonable warmth to the Pikes Peak Region on Monday, along with plenty of sunshine.

PUEBLO: Low: 21; High: 63. A cold morning followed by a nice and mild afternoon, with light westerly winds.

CANON CITY: Low: 29; High: 62. The work week will start out with another day filled with blue skies and well above average highs.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 25; High: 51. Our current stretch of warmer than average days and dry skies will continue on Monday and beyond, with no snow expected until late this week.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 20s; High: 50s. A clear and cold morning will give way to a sunny and mild afternoon, with light northwest breezes through the afternoon.

PLAINS: Low: 20s; High: 60s. A sunny and mild afternoon once the morning chill wears off. Gusty westerly winds will be possible at times during the day, but no rain or snowfall is expected.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 20s/30s; High: 50s. Brace yourselves for another gorgeous day, with plenty of sunshine and warmer than average highs.

MOUNTAINS: Low: 10s/20s; High: 30s/40s. We're looking at another "sun-sational" day of weather across the mountains of Southern Colorado on Monday, with pleasant highs and an abundance of sunshine.

Extended Outlook:
Our current streak of warm and dry weather will continue through Wednesday, with the potential for record setting highs in some areas. A cold front will drop highs by 10-15 degrees on Thursday, with further cooling expected both Friday and Saturday. A second piece of energy will push through Southern Colorado from late Friday afternoon through Saturday morning, and although there's not a lot of moisture to work with, it's likely that we'll at least see some snow during this time.
