Today’s Forecast:
Warm and a bit muggy today with thunderstorms possible back through the Pikes Peak region. Storms look most likely through Teller and El Paso county late today and early this evening. While we’ll have the warmth and energy for strong storms, we won’t have the wind support to sustain them for long. Small hail, gusty winds, and quick but sporadic heavy rains are possible in storms today and tonight. It’ll be warm again with highs back in the mid 80s for Colorado Springs and lower 90s for Pueblo. The winds will be stronger this afternoon, blowing back out of the southeast between 10 to 20 mph. Tonight any rain will dry up and we’ll see lows fall to the 50s and 60s.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High – 84; Low – 56. Warm, muggy and dry from the morning to the mid afternoon. Storms look possible once again today anytime after 3pm. Storms could be strong when they first develop, but severe weather is not likely today since we do not have much wind shear to keep storms healthy. Small hail, lightning and brief heavy rain are the main threats from storms late today.

PUEBLO: High – 91; Low – 60. Mainly hot, humid and windy today. There is a small chance storms in El Paso or Huerfano county could kick out an outflow boundary and fire up a few late day showers across Pueblo but that chance remains pretty weak.

CANON CITY: High – 87; Low – 61. Hot, muggy and windy today. Canon City looks to stay dry once again as the best energy for storms is closer to El Paso county, maybe a bit of activity could kick off in the mountains of northern Fremont county.

WOODLAND PARK: High – 74; Low – 51. Warm and a bit muggy with midday showers and thunderstorms possible. Storms look like they’ll probably form in the vicinity of Woodland Park and then move east into El Paso county where they’ll grow a bit bigger with the warmer and more humid air. Small hail and lightning will be the main worry for Woodland Park. 

TRI-LAKES: High – 70s; Low – 50s. Warm, muggy and windy with afternoon and early evening storms likely. Rain and thunderstorms look non severe but small hail, lightning and sporadic heavy rain are all possible from thunderstorms today.

PLAINS: High – 90s; Low – 60s. Hot and dry today but tonight storms that move east from El Paso and Huerfano counties will give a nice and scattered soak across the plains. Storms tonight will likely pack some heavy rains and lightning with small hail also possible.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High – 80s; Low – 50s/60s. Storms look to start over the I-25 corridor from Walsenburg to Trinidad anytime after 3pm today and then move east into the plains through the early evening. Small hail, heavy rain and gusty winds are the main threats from storms today.

This week will be pretty straight forward with chances for rain returning on Wednesday and lasting off and on into the weekend. We’ll be mainly hot and dry other than a few showers in the foothills Monday and Tuesday. Monsoon flow is the driving factor for moisture from Wednesday through the weekend but our modeling is still trying to pin down which days see the best chance for rain. Thursday is the best chance so far but we’ve added in afternoon scattered storm chances to the 4th of July. We’ll keep a close eye on this with the holiday coming around.
