Today’s Forecast:
Record breaking temperatures are possible again this afternoon across southern Colorado, especially in Pueblo. Dry ground, strong morning and mid afternoon sunshine and breezy afternoon winds all work together to heat the air well above average. The record in Colorado Springs is 93 and our forecast is 92, but Pueblo is forecast to hit 100 with a current record of 98. We may see a few spotty showers or thunderstorms in the mountains of the Pikes Peak region but as we saw yesterday, we’ll probably see more wind than rain in any of those storms that actually form. Tonight some stronger storms with wide spread rain is likely up above the Palmer Divide in east and northeast Colorado but a rogue storm could slip south of the Divide east of El Paso county.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High – 92; Low – 57. Hot and dry today with morning sunshine and afternoon clouds. We could see a few isolated strong gusts if any storms form in the mountains west of the city.

PUEBLO: High – 100; Low – 60. Very hot today with lots of sunshine and record breaking temperatures possible.

CANON CITY: High – 96; Low – 58. Very hot and dry today with morning sunshine and some afternoon clouds.

WOODLAND PARK: High – 82; Low – 50. Warm and mainly dry but an isolated thunderstorm after 4pm with gusty winds is possible.

TRI-LAKES: High – 80s; Low – 50s. Very warm and dry today with morning sunshine and afternoon cloud cover. Storms are possible this evening especially for areas east of the Tri Lakes area along the Palmer Divide.

PLAINS: High – 90s/100s; Low – 60s. Very hot and dry across the region with several triple digit highs expected.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High – 90s; Low – 50s. Hot and dry today with morning sun and afternoon clouds.

We keep the heat in the forecast through the weekend with essentially no rain or storm chance through that period. We could see an isolated heat driven thunderstorm in the mountains of the Pikes Peak region but even then we would see more wind than rain.
