It'll be mostly clear overnight with morning lows Sunday in the 40s/50s across all of Southern Colorado. Fall officially starts at 2:44pm (MDT) Sunday.
A system will move through Colorado late Sunday into early Monday. Expect a breezy wind gusting up to 30-40 mph at times throughout the day Sunday and Monday. Showers and storms are likely for the high country Sunday afternoon with isolated showers and storms moving over the Front Range and Southeastern Plains Sunday evening. Temperatures will top out in the 70s/80s on the first day of fall.
Locally heavy rain and strong winds are possible late Sunday. It only takes one strong thunderstorm to dump a lot of rain in a short amount of time over one area. Flash flooding is possible in and around the area burn scars Sunday if a strong cell moves overhead. Please stay on high alert if you live, work, or plan on being around the area burn scars.
Much of the workweek ahead looks nice and dry with lots of sunshine around Monday through Thursday. Highs will remain near or a few degrees above average as well. Another system looks to affect Southern Colorado Friday.
