The first day of spring in Colorado Springs could come with more record heat.

According to the National Weather Service in Pueblo, Colorado Springs could top out at 79 degrees on Monday, which would be enough to surpass the record of 74 set in 1907.

On Saturday and Sunday, the city hit 80 degrees - enough to break the previous high temperature marks, also set in 1907.

"The first day of spring Monday will bring more record warmth," KKTV meteorologist Jordan Sherman said in a weather report Sunday night, "but many places will be around 5 degrees cooler than Sunday with highs back in the mid 70s to mid 80s. The 'cool' down will continue into Tuesday to Wednesday with highs in the mid 60s to low 70s, but afternoons will remain breezy."

According to the weather service, Colorado Springs is forecast to see highs of 69 and 67 degrees on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively.

Rain could move into the state Thursday and Friday, Sherman said.
