Colorado Springs is under a red flag warning Sunday as temperatures hit the upper 90s and humidity levels fall below 10 percent.

The National Weather Service in Pueblo predicted a high of 96 degrees, just 2 degrees short of the 2013 record. Humidity levels are forecast to hit 8 percent.

The conditions prompted Colorado Springs, El Paso County and other Pikes Peak region cities to implement burn restrictions that carry a possible penalty of 189 days in jail and $2,500 in fines.

Colorado Springs will see some relief from the heat to start the work week, with highs of 84 degrees Monday and Tuesday.

"Temperatures cool a few degrees headed into early next week, back into the 80s and lower 90s," said Gazette news partner KKTV. "The pattern may break down a bit later next week, with a better chance for afternoon/evening storms to be more widespread. Until then, rain chances do not look good."
