TODAY: We are forecasting temperatures that would tie, or break, the all-time record highs in Colorado Spirngs and Pueblo...93 for the Springs and 100 for Pueblo. Chances for storms will be very slight as there is minimal available moisture to produce storms. 10-20 % chance over the higher elevations including Teller County.
TONIGHT: Again overnight skies will be mostly clear which will allow things to cool off nicely compared to today's sizzling temps.
WEDNESDAY: Your forecast for tomorrow sounds like a carbon copy of today, with mostly dry skies and temperatures staying way hotter than average throughout the day. Slight chance for storms continues over the mountains.
THURSDAY: Hot again, but if we are lucky it will be 3-5 degrees cooler than today. A little more moisture available and a few weak disturbances on the way mean that the chance for storms over the mountains and Front Range will go-up just a touch. 40% chance over Teller County and the Rampart Range. 20-30% chance over Monument Hill and the higher elevations of the Wet and Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Chance of storms will be 20% in Colorado Springs and Canon City. From Pueblo out on to the eastern plains expect chances of only about 10% of seeing some desperately needed moisture.
FRIDAY-SUNDAY: Last day of August and the first two days of September will be warm and mostly dry day for all of us. Temps will max-out on the middle 80's in the Springs and the lower 90's in Pueblo. All three days there will continue to be chances for storms over the mountains and higher elevations. By Sunday we'll again see a little better chance of a storm or two at the lower elevations...about 20% in Colorado Springs and 10% chance in Pueblo.
LABOR DAY: Your Monday holiday forecast is going to be very nice. Minimal chance of any afternoon storms for the lower elevations...only a 10-20% chance over the mountains. High temps will be about 83 in the Springs and 90 in Pueblo...a bit easier to take than our sizzling high temps today.
