Fire danger is a concern today due to low humidity values, a gusty southwest wind, and dry fuels.
There's an isolated chance for showers and storms today but that activity should stay confined to the mountain locations. A sprinkle or stray shower is possible around the Pikes Peak region and the Palmer Divide this afternoon and evening with the rest of Southern Colorado looking dry, breezy, and partly sunny today.
The chance for showers and thunderstorms increases into Sunday and Monday across Southern Colorado. Temperatures will cool as well with highs below average in the 60s/70s along the Front Range and Southeastern Plains.
Warmer temperatures return by the middle of the week with a dry Wednesday expected.
