THIS AFTERNOON: Just a touch milder today with a few showers and thunderstorms possible. Today will be the first day in two weeks that the temp will not hit 90 degrees or hotter and the first day since June 21st that the mercury will not hit 100 or hotter in Pueblo! There is a cool front on the way and we expect monsoon moisture to increase by this weekend. Ahead of that front we'll have about a 30% chance of a late day storm in the Springs and only about a 10-20% chance in Pueblo. Chances will be slightly higher over Monument Hill...north to Denver & Ft. Collins and the Rampart Range/Teller County.
TONIGHT: Chance of a few evening storms close to the mountains and foothills. Cool front moves through overnight and brings-in more moisture....so expect a few more clouds around tomorrow morning.
SATURDAY: Thanks to that front temps tomorrow will be at least 10 degrees cooler than today! Nice! We are actually expecting afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms over the mountains and foothills. Chances for storms tomorrow in Colorado Springs will be 50%...30-40% chance for Pueblo. Slightly lower chances over the eastern plains.
SUNDAY: If you like the sound of the cooler weather you'll be happy to know that temps Sunday will be even cooler than Saturday. Like the first day of the weekend, we'll have another round of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening. There will be a threat all weekend of a few storms dropping some heavy amounts of rain. For most of us that is good news, but not around the Waldo Canyon burn scar. We'll be watching for the chance of flash flooding around the mountains and foothills scorched by the blaze!
MONDAY: Weather to start next week sound exactly like Sunday's forecast. Cooler than average temps and more showers and thunderstorms!
TUESDAY: Slightly warmer with slightly lower chances for showers and storms during the afternoon and evening.
WEDNESDAY-THURSDAY: Drier air is expected to migrate into Colorado which means a return of mostly dry skies and warmer temps.
