Weather Alert Day: Hot and windy with high fire danger

Posted: Updated:

Today's Forecast:
Red Flag Warnings are back across El Paso and western Las Animas counties until 8pm today with low humidity and strong winds increasing fire danger. The sun will be out today and the strong angle will help to heat southern Colorado quickly through the afternoon. Highs will be in the mid 80s in Colorado Springs and low 90s across Pueblo. The winds will pick up this afternoon with gusts along I-25 in the 20 and 30 mph range. Storms are possible across eastern Colorado this afternoon and if they can form (big if), damaging hail and strong winds will be possible. Tonight we'll be dry and breezy with lows falling into the 50s.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High - 67; Low - 33. Red Flag Warning in effect until 8pm tonight. Sunny, hot and windy through the afternoon with dry and cooler conditions tonight.

PUEBLO: High - 67; Low - 33. Hot and windy this afternoon with sunny skies and low humidity. Tonight dry and cooler with lighter winds.

CANON CITY: High - 67; Low - 33. Hot and breezy this afternoon with sunny skies and low humidity. Tonight dry and cooler with calm winds.

WOODLAND PARK: High - 67; Low - 33. Beautiful and sunny today with a few afternoon clouds and a light breeze. Calm and chilly tonight.

TRI-LAKES: High - 67; Low - 33. Warm and windy today with sunny skies and low humidity. Breezy and chilly tonight.

PLAINS: High - 67; Low - 33. Hot and mainly dry today but isolated strong to severe storms are possible later this afternoon especially in areas east of Crowley, Otero and Lincoln counties. If storms form large hail and strong winds will be possible.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High - 67; Low - 33. Red Flag Warnings in western Las Animas county are in effect till 8pm tonight. Warm, dry air with windy conditions are expected into the evening with calmer and cooler conditions through the night.

More widespread and stronger storms are possible across the Front Range tomorrow afternoon through the early evening. As of now it looks like we'll spark storms in the Pikes Peak around around 4pm tomorrow with heavy rain, lightning and hail all possible. As storms move north and east to the Palmer Divide and Denver we are expecting better conditions for stronger storms with larger hail and even a funnel cloud or an isolated weak tornado all possible (tornadoes would be weak and more possible east of Denver metro area into the plains). Much cooler air will come down through the weekend and while rain chances are possible, we probably won't be looking at as many storm chances and Sunday now looks like the best chance for a good soak.
