Tonight's Forecast:
Red Flag Warnings should be allowed to expire at 8 pm as the wind weaken and relative humidity values recover later tonight. Temperatures tonight will stay fairly mild, with most areas only cooling down to the 50s and 60s.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 57; High: 91. Monday's forecast looks to be a near carbon copy of Sunday's weather. Highs will warm back into the lower 90s, with Red Flag Warnings in effect most of the day.

PUEBLO: Low: 60; High: 99. Hot and dry weather will continue on Monday. Red Flag Warnings will be in effect from noon to 8 pm.

CANON CITY: Low: 59; High: 93. It's the start of the final week of spring, and our weather will remain quite hot for this time of the year. In addition to the heat, Red Flag Warnings will return to Fremont County by the lunch hour.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 49; High: 78. Warm and dry on Monday, with high fire danger during the day across Teller County.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 50s; High: 80s. Unseasonable warmth will continue as we start the final week of spring. Due to dry fuels, gusty winds and low relative humidity, a Red Flag Warning will go back into effect at noon.

PLAINS: Low: 60s; High: 90s/100s. Hot and dry on Monday, with wind gusts to 35 mph across the Plains. High fire danger will remain in the forecast through at least the middle of the week.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 50s/60s; High: 90s. No sign of any cool down on Monday, with hot high temperatures and high fire danger in our forecast.

Extended Outlook:
A weak cool front will move into Southern Colorado on Tuesday. While it won't offer up much more than a degree or two of cooling, it will bring us the chance for a few spotty afternoon thunderstorms. Hot, dry and windy weather is back by Wednesday as Red Flag Warnings could be possible once again across a large part of Southern Colorado through at least the middle of the week.
