After a roller coaster week that saw hot, dry conditions with high fire danger for half the state, followed by much cooler temperatures and rain, autumn sets in for Colorado in the week ahead.

Eastern Plains

High temperatures Sunday will mainly be in the mid-50s to low 60s, with a chance for scattered showers continuing into Monday. Springfield will be the hot spot for the day, with a high in low 70s. Overnight lows will be in the 40s at least through mid-week.

Scattered showers are expected throughout the day, with heavier rain possible near the Kansas border after midnight into the early morning hours Monday.

Temperatures for the start of the week will remain below average, with highs in the 50s Monday, rising into the 60s Tuesday. By Wednesday, northeast Colorado will be back in the 70s.

While at least the early part of the week will be unsettled, next weekend is shaping up to be warmer and drier.

West Slope

A closed upper low is moving northeast across the area Sunday bringing drier air to much of the area. High temperatures will be in the mid-50s to low 60s, falling into the 30s overnight for most locations, while Cortez may see upper 20s.

For the coming week, look for unsettled conditions as a low-pressure system lingers in the area through next weekend. With a lack of cold air flowing into the area, snow levels will retreat, and daytime highs trend warmer as the week progresses.
