TODAY: Expect a much better chance of storms today all across our viewing area with mild temps sticking around one more day. A disturbance will move through the state today and combine with more moisture to give us that better chance for much needed precip. Storms expected over Teller County/The Rampart Range, Monument Hill, The Wet & Sangre de Cristo Mountains, Walsenburg and Trinidad. Storms are a good bet for much of the lower elevation too through the afternoon. At least a t 30-40% chance for the Springs, Briargate and Ft. Carson. 40% chance for Canon City and 30% chance for Pueblo, La Junta and Lamar.
TONIGHT: After that disturbance moves out of the state we'll see clearing skies overnight. Temps will cool nicely again.
TUESDAY: Compared to today's good chance for showers and storms, tomorrow will likely be completely dry at the lower elevations and maybe even over the mountains. Temp Tuesday and the next few days will be on the way up.
WEDNESDAY-FRIDAY: Warm to hot eastern Colorado with highs in the mid 80's in the Springs and lower 90's in Pueblo. For both cities we'll keep a 20% chance of storms going in the forecast each afternoon. Chances for storms will be slightly higher over the mountains each day.
SATURDAY-SUNDAY: Weekend forecast will stay warm with mid eighties around Colorado Springs and lower 90's in Pueblo. With less available moisture in the air skies should be mostly to completely dry. Even in the mountains close to home we'll see very low chances for storms for Saturday and Sunday.
Have a great week!
