It'll be a quiet night across Southern Colorado with mostly clear skies overhead and lows generally ranging from 20 to 30 degrees.
Monday will be mostly sunny, dry, and mild with the wind picking up once again for areas along and west of I-25. Winds will be sustained at 10 to 20 mph out of the west along the Front Range gusting up to 30 mph at times. Due to the dry conditions and wind, a Fire Weather Watch is in effect from 10am until 5pm Monday for the lower elevations of Pueblo, Huerfano, and Las Animas Counties. Blowing dust is also likely in the usual areas between Pueblo and Trinidad. Expect well above average highs in the 50s/60s over the lower elevations Monday.
A series of weather systems look to move through the state Tuesday through next weekend keeping our weather somewhat unsettled and on the cool side. As of now, the mountains are on tap to see accumulating snow off and on through the week ahead while the chance for rain/snow remains isolated at best over the Plains. This forecast will likely change throughout the week, so stay tuned!
