Temperatures have been very mid-June like this afternoon. Temperatures climbed in to the 80°s across most of the front range and the southeastern Plains of Colorado.
A few clouds began to drift in during the afternoon keeping temperatures in check. Tonight, clouds early should give way to clearing skies by early Sunday morning.
Lows tonight will drop to the 40°s and 50°s but expect a mild Sunday morning. (Colorado Springs: 51° | Pueblo: 46°)
We should see mostly sunny skies turning partly sunny once again Sunday. Temperatures will likely be a couple degrees warmer than Saturday. Highs should top out in the 80° to near 90°. (Colorado Springs: 83° | Pueblo: 88°)
Interesting weather tidbit... If Pueblo can hit 90° Sunday and/or Monday, this will be the first time the city has reached 90° in nearly eight months. You have to go back to September 9, 2013 to find the last 90°+ day.
WARMTH TO LAST:
The warm temperatures will continue for southern Colorado through early week. Long-range computer models suggest an upper-level wave will move through the western United States. This will bring a chance of cooler temperatures and a chance of rain to parts of the KOAA viewing area. Right now, it looks like the best chance for rain will come Thursday with chances Friday and next Saturday in the mountains. - Meteorologist John Dissauer
