We also saw heavy rain bring localized flooding in some areas.

The National Weather Service issued a red flag warning for Colorado Springs and much of southeastern Colorado Monday and Tuesday due to gusty winds, low relative humidity and abundant dry fuels. Highs will be back in the 60s and 70s to wrap up the week. This will impact portions of Interstate 10 through the San Gorgonio Pass and the Coachella Vally.Interstate 8 through the San Diego County mountains. and Interstate 15 across desert areas north of the Cajon Pass. Turning cloudier overnight from the west, accompanied by strengthening southwesterly winds, but staying dry throughout. A very quiet spell of weather is shaping up from Friday right through early next week as a high pressure system parks itself in our region. Winds will stay calm out of the south. Sunshine will return for our Tuesday, but things will feel a little breezy with winds out of the southwest at 10-20 miles per hour. Windy, with a southwest wind 20 to 30 miles per hour becoming northwest 10 to 20 miles per hour after midnight.

A chilly start for Tuesday as skies clear out, temperatures will drop into the mid 30s making frost a possibility, especially in areas away from town.

Friday is expected to be sunny with highs in the mid-70s. Sunday high temperatures will be in the upper 40s to lower 50s.
