Thick smoke and haze blanketing the Pikes Peak region Wednesday morning is creating poor air quality.
TODAY: Mostly sunny skies (if not for the smoke) and mild temperatures Wednesday afternoon. Highs will be in the mid-70s for Colorado Springs and the low-80s.
TONIGHT: Periods of smoke and haze tonight. Overnight lows dip into the forties overnight… and the twenties and thirties in the higher elevations.
EXTENDED: Cooler temperatures will greet us Thursday with high temperatures in the mid-60s around Colorado Springs and the low-70s across the eastern plains. Temperatures will fluctuate heading into the weekend, but a gradual warming trend for Friday and Saturday.
