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.
