Detailed Forecast

Rest of Today: Warm and breezy with a late day sprinkle possible over the mountains.  Temperatures will hover in the 50s to lower 60 over the mountains, 60s and 70s for the plains.

Tonight:  A few showers will remain possible over the mountains tonight, but for most areas we just expect an increase in clouds.  Late tonight the breeze may pick up in some areas, and we should remain rather warm with low temperatures in the 40s to near 50 for the plains, mainly 30s over the mountains.

Extended:   Temperatures will cool noticeably on Saturday along I-25 during the afternoon, and rain showers should be fairly numerous over and near the mountains.  Wet snow may fall at times over the mountains, but the snow should remain quite high with roadways in Teller county likely remaining wet.  Windy and still warm over the southeastern plains where high temperatures may reach the 70s to lower 80s early Saturday afternoon.  Sunday looks a little warmer along I-25, but there may exist enough instability for spotty afternoon showers (perhaps accompanied by a little thunder) to develop again.  We are not expecting a weekend washout by any means, but even spotty showers will tend to cool the air noticeably at times, so be prepared with a coat nearby, especially for Saturday.  Warmer, breezy and dry early next week.  Windy on Wednesday, then colder again by Thursday.
