Today’s Forecast:
Storms could be strong once again today, particularly for those of you out east of I-25 into the plains. Storm threats today involve large hail, strong winds, and plenty of lightning. It'll be much cooler overall today with highs in the 80s and 90s across the lower elevations. Overnight we'll be cool and calm.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High: 87; Low: 58. Warm and breezy in the afternoon with spotty strong but possibly severe thunderstorms. The severe chances are better east of Colorado Springs across El Paso county.

PUEBLO: High: 96; Low: 60. Still hot and breezy in the afternoon with strong, possibly severe storms in the afternoon. Severe chances look best east of the city out closer to Crowley and Otero counties.

CANON CITY: High: 94; Low: 62. Hot and breezy at times today with a chance for spotty thunderstorms, some of which could be on the stronger side. Strong to severe chances are still far better east of Fremont County today, but stay vigilant in the afternoon.

WOODLAND PARK: High: 81; Low: 52. Warm with spotty showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon, most of which stand a good chance of staying non-severe. Small hail and lightning could develop easily in spotty storms.

TRI-LAKES: High: 80s; Low: 50s. Warm with spotty thunderstorms possible in the afternoon, some of which could be on the stronger side with small hail, lightning, and gusty winds.

PLAINS: High: 90s; Low: 60s. Hot and muggy in the afternoon with strong to severe storms very likely in the mid to late afternoon, moving into Kansas through the early evening. Large hail and 60-70 mph winds are the biggest threats from storms today.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High: 90s; Low: 60s. Hot with scattered showers and thunderstorms, some of which could be on the stronger side this afternoon. Severe weather chances are low today, but keep a closer eye on the skies from Trinidad east through Las Animas County.

Extended Outlook:
Wednesday looks like the best chance for strong to severe thunderstorms in and around the mountains and I-25 corridor. Storms will have more moisture tomorrow which could mean heavier rain and more widespread rain. Storm chances will stick around through the end of the week and into the weekend, but hot air over the weekend will limit storms out away from I-25.
