Be aware that even though Red Flag Warnings are no longer in effect for our area, the fire danger still exists and you should be especially mindful of that threat and be careful with cigarettes, grills, and other potential fire starters.
Heat is the main feature of today's forecast. Most areas along the Palmer Divide, including Colorado Springs, will warm into the 90's this afternoon. Areas along the Arkansas River will warm to near 100, while the Southeastern Plains will warm to over 100. An upslope flow that develops late this afternoon may favor an isolated shower in higher elevations, but most of us will stay dry.
More showers and thunderstorms will develop in the mountains with an increasing upslope flow tomorrow. Some of those showers could ease out to the I-25 corridor by early evening before fading away overnight. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are in the forecast for all of Southern Colorado by Friday.
