TODAY: We started the Monday forecast with quite a few temps at or below freezing this morning. By later today our highs will be about 4-7 degrees warmer than highs on Sunday. You'll notice more sunshine in the forecast, but you might also see a stray shower or two. Just after lunch we'll have a slight chance of a shower or thunderstorm. Chances about 20% for El Paso and Teller County....10% chance for Pueblo, Canon City, Trinidad and La Junta.
TONIGHT: Cold again. Some temps could be close to or around the freezing mark again. You might want to protect some of you fragile plants just to be safe.
