Overview: We're tracking heat and wind which will lead cause conditions to become favorable for the spread of wildfires at times for some areas this week. Isolated showers and/or thunderstorms are possible for some areas on occasion, but most days will remain dry for many of us for awhile. A couple of weak cold fronts could enhance thunderstorms chances briefly later in the week.
Today: Mostly sunny to partly cloudy, becoming breezy and hot again with a slight chance for a sprinkle, brief shower, or crack of thunder over the mountains, and possibly over the plains mainly east of the I-25 corridor during the afternoon and early evening hours. Most areas will likely remain dry with conditions becoming favorable for the spread of wildfires during the afternoon so the National Weather Service Forecast Office in Pueblo has issued a Red Flag Warning valid from 12PM to 8 PM for much of the area. High temperatures shouldn't change much from Saturday with 90s to near 100 for the plains, 80s and 90s along the I-25 corridor, and 70s to lower 80s for our local mountain communities and mountain valleys.
Tonight: The wind will decrease and the sky will become mostly clear with low temperatures in the 50s and 60s for the plains with 40s and 50s for the mountains and mountain valleys.
Extended: Conditions don't look to change much for Monday and Tuesday. A weak cold front looks to arrive later this week and should bring a slight chance for spotty showers and thunderstorms to some areas. A stronger cold front may arrive on Saturday and bring more areas better chances for some rain.
