What a difference a day makes! Temperatures Thursday were WAY above Tuesday and Wednesday's high. By noon on Thursday, temperatures were already hotter than the past 2 day's highs. Now, we're saying goodbye to the cool and hello to the heat.
4th of July through the weekend looks very festive! Temperatures will continue to go up for the weekend as the sunshine will be out in full force. Highs for your Friday will be near 90 for Springs and approaching 100 for Pueblo. These temps will even go up a few more degrees Saturday and Sunday so it'll definitely be hot! A good time to get out the ice cream and popsicles!
Now there will be a SLIGHT chance of a stray shower from the 4th through Monday, but most areas will stay dry. These showers will be very isolated. However, if you do get one that develops over you, you could be dealing with lots of lightning and heavy rain. But I wouldn't put any outdoor plans on hold because of this. Right now the odds are in your favor.
Next week there's a slightly better chance of seeing more rain. That will come Wednesday afternoon with a front. As we approach this, temperatures will slowly back off for the start of the week.
Hope you enjoy your Holiday weekend... Meteorologist Valerie Abati
