Detailed Forecast

This Afternoon:  It will be another warm day, with near record highs again!  The record high for Colorado Springs today is 79 degrees, and in Pueblo it is 87 degrees... both records set back in 1959.  Even if we don't get there, today's highs will be more like what we would expect to see in early September.  There will be plenty of sunshine through the afternoon with a breeze developing in some areas.

Tonight: Mostly clear skies and calm conditions are anticipated. Lows will drop into the 30s and 40s in most areas.  Winds will be lighter and out of the northwest.

Extended:  It will become breezy on Sunday, but temperatures will remain warm.  The wind could gust to 40 mph in some areas and is ahead of our next storm system that will bring some noticeably cooler air on Monday.  Temperatures will drop into the 50s and 60s, and will stay more "seasonal" through next week.  Rain for the lower elevations, with snow across the mountains will be possible Monday, but the remainder of the week (including Halloween!) looks to stay dry.
