Low pressure over Montana will send a cold front thorough Colorado tonight and tomorrow. The cold front will move into Southern Colorado Tuesday morning and bring widespread rain and cooler air with it. For today, the rain will fall mainly over the Western Slope and the High Country, but scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop in the high elevations west of I-25 today. A few of those thunderstorms will be able to escape the mountains and move out over the Palmer Divide, but many areas will miss the rain today. Tomorrow is when most of us WILL see rain.
Temperatures will be slightly cooler today than they have been. Highs will be in the low-to-mid 80's around the Palmer Divide, including Colorado Springs. Expect 70's for Monument Hill with 60's and 70's in Teller County. Areas near and east of I-25 along the Arkansas River, including Pueblo, will warm into the low-to-mid 90's. Expect 80's in the Wet Mountains and the southern I-25 Corridor from Walsenburg to Trinidad.
Tuesday will be marked by rain and temperatures that are 15-20 degrees cooler than Monday.
