Detailed Forecast

Tonight:  Any early showers will end, then partly cloudy overnight.  Low temperatures in the 40s to lower 50s for the plains, mainly 30s over the mountains.

Wednesday: Wednesday will still be warm, but will be quite windy and very dry.  The NWS has already issued a Red Flag Warning for most of southern Colorado for Wednesday afternoon. Highs in the 60s and 70s for most.

Extended:   Less wind Thursday and Friday.  Saturday looks OK with increasing clouds and wind, Temperatures will drop back into the 50s and 60s behind the cold front, with a better chance for at least scattered showers/thunderstorms.  The weekend system may pass a little too far to our north to bring heavy rain and snow to the area, but it's close, and something we'll track closely the rest of the week.
