Much hotter than average again today!

TODAY: Hot, breezy and dry again today for almost all of us. Temps this afternoon will be 10-15 degrees hotter than average. High in the Springs will be 93 degrees which would tie today's all-time record. Pueblo will hit 100....102 is the record. You'll notice some south/southeasterly winds this afternoon around 10-15 mph close to the mountains. On the plains winds will be as strong as 20-30 mph. Just like yesterday...any storms that appear will be over the mountains and higher elevations.

TONIGHT: Mostly clear and lovely again tonight. Temps will cool-off about 35 degrees overnight!

THURSDAY: A little bit of good news in tomorrow's forecast. Expect a little better chance of storms at the higher elevations and close to the mountains with temps about 3-5 degrees cooler than today. Chances for storms over Teller County go up to about 30-40% and as much as a 20% chance in Colorado Springs. We might see one or two storms around Canon City, Walsenburg or Trinidad, but they are not very likely at all for places like Pueblo and areas to the east. Highs tomorrow will hit 90 in the Springs and 97 in Pueblo.

FRIDAY-SATURDAY: Mostly dry skies expected again locally....with maybe a few afternoon storms over the mountains. We will expect temps to continue to come down just a touch both days as some 'slightly' cooler air moves through the state. Also...a few clouds each afternoon will help break-up the intense Colorado sun.

SUNDAY-LABOR DAY: More moisture in the air and again a slight chance of storms returns to the Front Range. 20% chance in Colorado Springs each afternoon with a slightly higher chance over the mountains and highest elevations. Unfortunately chances for any storms east of I-25 and the plains will be at about 10% or less. Temps each afternoon will reach the mid 80's in the Springs and lower 90's in Pueblo and La Junta.

Have a great weekend!

Falcon school fights to save student's life

FALCON- Aden Knar, a third grade student at Falcon Virtual Academy, is in need of a life-saving bone marrow transplant. His school, Falcon Virtual Academy, will host a bone marrow donor drive tomorrow to help find a match Aden. Knar, 10, was diagnosed at age 4 with acute lymphoblastic leukemia and entered remission in 2008. In November 2013, the Knar family learned that the leukemia had returned, and is now isolated in his bone marrow. In an outreach of support, Falcon Virtual Academy hosted a bone marrow donor drive in January, and will be hosting another tomorrow from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. at 6113 Constitution Ave., directly west of Care and Share Food Bank for Southern Colorado. "We wanted to reach out to the family again," said Jodi Fletcher, assistant principal. Fletcher explained that more than 250 people participated in the January drive, and she hopes to have similar numbers April 19. The money from a bake sale at the drive, and a portion of the proceeds raised from a spring formal...
