Detailed Forecast

Today: It will not be quite as windy today as it was on Monday.  Expect plenty of sunshine in the morning, with clouds building through the afternoon.  There will be a few isolated, weak storms during the afternoon -- mainly south and west of Pueblo.  Most areas will see warmer daytime temperatures than Monday.  Highs across the lower elevations will range from the 80s to the 90s with the 70s for the mountain locations.

Tonight: Partly to mostly cloudy skies will take us through the overnight hours.  Lows will drop into the 50s throughout the lower elevations and into the 40s for most of the high country.  It will drop into the upper 30s in Leadville.

Extended: We anticipate the highest daytime temperatures this week to be on Wednesday. After that, a significant cool down heads our direction. Cooler air will make its way into the region Thursday, dropping temperatures to the 70s and 80s in the lower elevations by Friday. The best chances for storms will fall between Friday and Sunday; some of these storms could produce heavy rainfall, so we'll need to monitor the burn scars closely.
