Our hot high pressure is still sitting tight over the Great Plains on Friday, but it is finally going to begin weakening. The weakening begins today, and as a result we will notice increasing cloud cover by late afternoon, especially in areas north of Colorado Springs. A stray thunderstorm is possible in Teller County and areas north and west, too. A cold front will bring scattered showers and thunderstorms to Southeastern Colorado Saturday afternoon and evening. Behind the cold front, the upslope breeze will mean a few lingering showers, but expect an overall drying and warming trend to begin on Monday.
Today, temperatures will top out in the mid-to-upper 80's and even lower 90's around Colorado Springs, Pueblo and Cañon City will warm into the mid-to-upper 90's. The Lower Arkansas Valley and the Southeast Plains will warm to near or just over 100. The south of of I-25 near Walsenburg and Trinidad will warm into the lower 90's.
