Visitors walk through Garden of the Gods Park on a sunny day, Wednesday, March 25, 2020, as Colorado Springs Mayor John Suthers encouraged all hikers, bikers, bird watchers and "sun worshippers" to maintain six feet of separation. No one should go out if feeling sick, he said. Team sports should not be played, he added, and children should not be sharing playground equipment.

Colorado Springs is expected to dodge extreme weather Tuesday, having not been included in a nearby red flag warning, and with thunderstorms possible, though not severe.

The red flag warning, running from 11 a.m. through 8 p.m., covers nearby Cañon City, as well as the southwest corner of the state, according to the National Weather Service in Pueblo.

The city could see afternoon thunderstorms on Tuesday, according to a hazardous weather outlook, but nothing too intense. Otherwise, the high is expected to top out at 83, with winds up to 15 mph.

Wednesday: Sunny, with a high near 85 and winds up to 15 mph.
