Detailed Forecast

Tonight:  Mostly clear skies will take us through the overnight hours.  Lows will drop into the 50's throughout the lower elevations and into the 40's for most of the high country, except for upper 30's in Leadville.

Tomorrow:  We are tracking another hot one with temperatures rivaling record highs (98 in Pueblo, set in 1947 and 91 in Colorado Springs, set in 1960).  Highs will be in the 80s and 90s for most.  There may be a few clouds across the plains tomorrow morning, but for most we'll have plenty of sunshine.  Clouds will pass overhead during the late afternoon, but aside from a few sprinkles across the high country, we should stay dry.

Extended: Cooler air will make its way into the state on Thursday with an afternoon cold front.  Temperatures will drop into the 70's and 80's across the lower elevations, continuing to fall through Saturday.  While we could see an isolated storm as the front passes overhead, the best chances for storms will be on Friday and Saturday; some of these storms could produce heavy rainfall, so we'll need to monitor the burn scars closely.
