A cold front attached to a developing storm system to our north will move through our area today. We will notice an increase in the cloud cover and even a few showers along the Southern Front Range, but the best chance for rain will be across the Southeastern Plains. An even bigger and more noticeable feature with this passing storm system will be a huge increase in the wind. Gusts could be as high as 30-35 mph with higher 50-60 mph gusts in higher elevations. You will really notice that wind when you are driving today.
Tonight that wind will shift and eventually diminish. The wind shift will open the door for some chilly air to flow into Southern Colorado from the north.
Today's highs will be in the upper 60's and lower 70's around Colorado Springs with lower 70's on Monument Hill and mid 50's to low 60's in Teller County. Pueblo will warm into the upper 70's today with lower 70's around Cañon City and lower 80's for the Southeastern Plains. The southern I-25 corridor will warm into the low-to-mid 70's.
Lows tonight will drop to below freezing around Monument and throughout Teller County. Expect mid-to-upper 30's around Colorado Springs and Pueblo with upper 30's and lower 40's in most other areas of Southeastern Colorado.
