Posted at 4:03 PM, Jun 16, 2019

Tonight’s Forecast:

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will come to an end by midnight, allowing for skies to become mostly clear. Overnight low temperatures will drop into the lower 50s and upper 40s.

The westerly flow continues on Monday with another round of showers and storms. Once again, sunshine to start the day with individual cells igniting in the mountains and finding their collective way down to the I-25 corridor by late afternoon. Some of these isolated cells will be strong to severe in nature with the largest threats being lightning, small hail and gusty winds. Highs on Monday will reach the mid-70s for the Springs and lower 80s for Pueblo.

EXTENDED OUTLOOK:

Tuesday will feature one more significant round of late-day, strong thunderstorms. By Wednesday, the atmosphere begins to quiet down with only a slight chance of afternoon thunderstorm activity. We remain fairly quiet for Thursday and Friday as our temperatures soar into the 80s for the Springs and lower 90s for Pueblo. By Saturday, a fresh cold front approaches from the North and will once again introduce a chance for afternoon showers and storms while simultaneously cooling us down for the weekend.
