Last Update: October 19th, 6:15 AM
TUESDAY: A storm moving across the northwestern part of the state early in the day will bring some snow to the central and northern mountains. Locally, we’ll start the day with some wind for the mountains southwest of Pueblo and then see the wind spread over the rest of the area through the morning and afternoon. The cold front with the storm will pull temperatures back about ten degrees from Monday’s highs and the wind will help you notice it. Fire danger increases with the wind. With that in mind, a Red Flag Warning will be in effect Tuesday afternoon and evening for many areas in southeastern Colorado. This is along and east of I-25 as well as Most of Fremont County. Avoid any activities that might spark a fire.
TONIGHT: Decreasing wind and a clear sky will allow temperatures to get quite cold over the mountains and some of the big valleys with numbers bottoming out in the teens and 20s – except for the banana belt of the upper Arkansas River Valley where we’ll stay near freezing. We’ll be around or below freezing up and down the Interstate too while the southeast plains end up in the low to mid 30s.
WEDNESDAY: After a cold start we’ll get a very pleasant fall afternoon with sunshine, breezes and temperatures mainly in the 60s.
EXTENDED: The rest of the week will feature temperatures creeping up, periods of passing clouds and a few breezes too. We look to be mainly dry through the weekend across the state and the afternoons will be beautiful. Weather looks great for the big Air Force vs. San Diego State football game late Saturday too.
