Forecasters predict suntan-worthy weather for Colorado Springs Thursday with a high approaching the low 70s.

That's more than 13 degrees above the average high for the date, but far from a record. Colorado Springs saw a record high of 81 degrees on April 10, 1960, according to the National Weather Service. The record low for the date was set in 1959, at 3 degrees below zero.

Residents of the Pikes Peak region will get to see some of that whipsaw of spring weather in the coming days, forecasters predict.

High temperatures are expected to hang in the low 70s for much of the region through Saturday before a cold front moves in. That wintry blast will drop Sunday's high temperatures into the 40s, with a low in the 20s expected Sunday night.

Along with the cold air, the region will see a shot of moisture. Forecasters expect rain for much of the I-25 corridor changing to flurries Sunday night.

The high country could see a few inches of snow.
