Patchy fog and low clouds will be present across the eastern plains Tuesday morning. Areas around Colorado Springs will also have places with reduced visibilities early and will continue to do so through the morning commute.
Expect another warm day with showers and thunderstorms again across south central and southeast Colorado Tuesday afternoon. The best coverage of storms will be along and immediately behind a weak cold front moving across the Palmer Divide in the afternoon, and across the far southeast plains where a few strong to severe storms producing large hail and damaging wind gusts in excess of 60 mph will be possible. Storms which develop across the rest of the area will be more high based, producing gusty up to 45 mph along with brief periods of light rain.
On Wednesday, low level moisture across the southern plains will produce areas of patchy fog, and some low clouds. In the afternoon, expect scattered showers and storms over the mountains, high valleys, and along the I-25 corridor. There will be some isolated showers and thunderstorms across the far southern plains. Some of these storms across southern Colorado could become severe. Unsettled conditions should continue through the night, with the chances of precip continues.
For Thursday morning, expect a similar pattern to Wednesday, with the chance for patchy fog across most of southern Colorado. For the afternoon, expect a chance for an isolated shower and thunderstorm across the region. Once again, some of these storms could become severe.
Friday, the weather will continue to be unsettled, with cooler temperatures and a chance for precipitation.
