Today’s Forecast:
Another beautiful day proceeds a stormy late afternoon and evening for southern Colorado. We’ll be cloudy today but as the afternoon moves on more sunshine will try and crack through the clouds to build up energy for storms later. There are two areas for storms, one south and another up north around the Palmer Divide. Storms will pop earlier in Huerfano county and then move east this afternoon into the evening with heavy rain, lightning and some small hail. The second and bigger round of storms will be starting in Teller county and then move east through El Paso and into the plains. Heavy rain, lightning and small hail will move through that area late today after 5pm through the evening.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High – 67; Low – 33. Cloudy and dry through most of the afternoon. Storms will start up after 5pm and move through the Springs off and on till 9pm tonight. Lightning, heavy rain and small hail will all be possible, especially for the storms that cross through from 5 to 7pm.

PUEBLO: High – 67; Low – 33. Mainly dry and warm today and tonight. A stray thunderstorm could clip the north side of the city tonight from 6 to 8pm.

TRI-LAKES: High – 67; Low – 33. Cloudy and dry for a majority of the day but storms will push in after 4 to 5pm and will last into the evening. Storms should produce heavy rains, lightning and possibly a decent amount of small hail with the rain ending around 9 to 10pm.

PLAINS: High – 67; Low – 33. Morning clouds and afternoon sun with storms possible across Las Animas and Baca counties, but possibly as far north as Otero and Bent counties. Lightning, some heavy rain and small hail are possible this afternoon through the early evening.
