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.

Monday is expected to be mostly sunny with a high of 73 degrees and winds between 15 and 20 mph in the morning, according to the National Weather Service in Pueblo.

Temperatures will drop slightly Monday night with a high of 62 degrees forecast for Tuesday. Winds are expected to increase Tuesday with sustained winds between 20 and 35 mph and gusts as high as 45 mph, meteorologists predict. 

Temperatures will continue to drop late in the work week. 

"We are watching a late week storm that will bring rain and snow to southern Colorado Friday into Saturday. It is too soon to talk totals and timing, but plan on windy conditions, wet weather and a cool down," said Gazette news partner KKTV Monday.
