The forecast from the morning is still largely on track. Warm and humid air is building across southern Colorado to provide more than enough fuel for storms this afternoon and evening. Storms look to form first in the southern I-25 corridor from Pueblo down through Walsenburg to Trinidad. Another target area for storm development will be north and eastern El Paso county but really favoring the higher terrain of the Palmer Divide. Storms will move east through the afternoon and most of the activity will be east into Kansas by 10pm tonight. Hail and strong winds are both still very likely in any storm that becomes severe today, especially out in the plains east of El Paso and Pueblo counties.
COLORADO SPRINGS: High – 87; Low – 58. Storms look to develop especially north and east of the city this afternoon after 2pm today. Additional storms may form in and around the city anytime after 3pm through 8pm tonight. Large hail and strong winds are once again a possibility from storms through the evening.
PUEBLO: High – 94; Low – 60. Hot and humid today with storms looking to develop around 2pm this afternoon. Storms will push east slowly east into the plains with Pueblo county likely being dry by 7pm tonight. Large hail and strong winds are both possible with storms today.
CANON CITY: High – 89; Low – 64 Storms are possible in Fremont county and Canon City but most modeling shows the best potential in far eastern Fremont county closer to Pueblo. If storms do form this afternoon it would likely be after 2pm with large hail and strong winds both possible.
WOODLAND PARK: High – 81; Low – 52. Spotty showers and thunderstorms are possible in Woodland Park this afternoon but the best chances for rain seem to be east towards El Paso county. Any storms that do form could have small to medium sized hail with nickle likely being the largest size.
TRI-LAKES: High – 80s; Low – 50s. Storms are possible this afternoon after 2pm and then again through the evening, especially along the Palmer Divide. Large hail and strong winds will be possible especially in any afternoon storms but evening storms could remain quite strong.
PLAINS: High – 90s; Low – 60s. Strong and severe thunderstorms are likely this afternoon across the plains with storms likely starting near the I-25 corridor and then moving east through the evening. Large hail, strong winds and heavy rain with lightning is all possible from storms later today.
WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High – 80s/90s; Low – 60s. Strong to severe storms look to develop around 2pm this afternoon and then slowly push east into the plains through the afternoon. Large hail and strong winds both look likely for any storms that develop later on today.
WEEKEND OUTLOOK OR NEXT WEATHER MAKER:
Tomorrow will be the hottest day of the week with Colorado Springs warm into the lower 90s and Pueblo likely near 100. Storms will once again be possible Friday afternoon and evening with severe threats once again present. Saturday looks to be the driest day across southern Colorado with better storm chances returning Sunday through Tuesday.
