Temperature records may fall across Colorado Sunday and Monday, though more seasonal temperatures are expected by mid-week.

Eastern Plains

Sunday will be mostly dry with temperatures reaching the low to mid-70s. Monday will be more of the same as temperatures pick up a few degrees. Springfield will have a change to reach the low 80s - as much as 30 degrees above normal for this time of year. Gusty winds and low humidity will increase the first danger; however, a fire weather watch is not yet in effect.

Change sets in Tuesday as the daytime highs shed 20-25 degrees compared to Monday. Three storm systems are expected to cross the area over the course of the week, with the first setting in Monday night into Tuesday.

Tuesday's system is short on moisture, so cooler temperatures will be the main impact, though some showers are possible south of Highway 50.

Another system makes an appearance later in the day Wednesday, continuing the cooler trend.

For the coming weekend, models vary, however there is potential for a wetter storm system to move into the area. Check back for updates.

West Slope

Look for a few high clouds throughout the day into Sunday evening, with daytime highs reaching the mid-60s. Near-record temperatures are possible. Monday will be similar, though gusty wind out of the southwest is expected.

A fast-moving system enters the area Monday night, with the potential to leave some precipitation in the form of rain and snow. The system moves out by Tuesday afternoon, with highs expected to be 10-15 degrees cooler.

Temperatures will remain in the 50s Wednesday. Another system is on track to move in late Wednesday into early Thursday, with another following early next week.
