Posted at 5:38 PM, Jul 01, 2019

Today’s Forecast: Rain and thunderstorms are back in the forecast today and warm air and moisture collide later today. We'll be dry but cloudy through the morning with thunderstorms development starting first in the Pikes Peak Region around noon. Storms will develop off the mountains and down the interstate first, and then spread through the plains to the east into the afternoon. Slow moving storms will produce heavy rain through the afternoon and evening, making the primary storm threat today flash flooding, especially for the burn scars. Hail threats are low and we could easily see some strong winds in early afternoon thunderstorms. Tonight the rain will slowly merge to a large thunderstorm complex across the plains with dry skies by Tuesday morning.

If we do see hail in storms, and that chance is low, it would be during the first few hours of the afternoon.
