Overview: Fall officially begins next week so it isn’t surprising that the air temperature will vary some from day to day with cool nights for many, and of course we’ll have some wind.
Today: Sunny this morning, then becoming partly cloudy and breezy this afternoon with high temperatures in the 70s and 80s for the plains with 60s to lower 70s for the mountains. Clouds will begin to thicken up over northern areas late in the day as an upper level wave approaches the area.
Tonight: Partly to mostly cloudy with scattered showers and possibly a little thunder possible for areas mainly along and north of the Arkansas River. We do not expect it will rain everywhere but some areas will get wet. By morning the showers will have ended, the sky will be clearing and the air will have cooled into the 40s to near 50 for the plains with 30s over our local mountain areas. The air may cool into the 20s over the San Luis Valley and so the National Weather Service Forecast Office in Pueblo has issued a Freeze Watch for late tonight and early Sunday morning.
Sunday: Sunny and a little cooler again with breezy areas developing in the afternoon. High temperatures will climb into the 70s for the plains with mainly 60s over the mountains.
Extended: Partly cloudy, breezy and warmer Monday & Tuesday with high temperatures back into the 80s for the plains with 70s for the mountains. The air should cool some again for the latter half of the week with scattered showers returning to some areas on Thursday and Friday.
