Wet Pattern Continues

Wet Pattern Continues

There will be another chance for a few showers and thunderstorms to develop late this morning and early afternoon over the higher terrain west of I-25.  A few of these could reach the I-25 corridor, especially in El Paso County.

Temperatures will be held down this afternoon as highs will only be in the upper 70°s to upper 80°s.  Winds will be out of the south and southeast at 6-14mph.

I have an isolated chance for showers and thunderstorms in Colorado Springs Saturday.  I am keeping rain out of the forecast for Pueblo Saturday although there is a very small chance for a shower.  A better chance for more widespread rain moves in to southern Colorado Sunday.

Putting a Dent in the Drought

Medium to long range computer models are pumping out above normal rainfall over the next seven days.  An average of two computer models suggests 1.58" of rain for Colorado Springs and 0.71" of rain for Pueblo today through 6pm Thursday.  When compared to climatological normals for the same time period that is 205% normal for Colorado Springs and 131% normal for Pueblo.

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.
