Calmer winds today....plenty of sunshine and nice and mild. We'll have dry skies in both Colorado Springs and Pueblo by days end. There are a few shower and thunderstorms moving from New Mexico into far southeastern Colorado this afternoon. One or two of the storms could become strong to severe with areas of small hail and gusty winds.
Thursday will be mild again, but there are some changes on the way that include cooler temps and a better chance of storms by late tomorrow night....Friday and Saturday. A cold front will push into eastern Colorado tomorrow and increase the chance of storms by tomorrow evening...it will also lower our temps. Highs Friday and Saturday will only be in the 50's in most cases.
Chances for storms along the front range and in eastern Colorado will be about 30% for Friday...about 40-50% for Saturday!
Drier, warmer weather expected for Sunday if you have some plans to do some gardening or yardwork.
A reminder that this week is Severe Weather Awareness Week in Colorado. Before the storms turn nasty make sure you and your family have a plan of what you would do in the event of severe weather...including flooding, large hail or even tornadic activity.
