Today’s Forecast:
We were able to shove the heat out of Colorado this weekend but it’s coming back today. Sunny skies will bring temperatures back into the low 90s in Colorado Springs and upper 90s for Pueblo. The relative humidity will be down in the teens along I-25 this afternoon, meaning we’ll feel that dry heat the four corners are famous for. Fire danger will be elevated but we won’t see any fire advisories with wind speeds not meeting the criteria. Storms are possible across the southeastern plains into the Kansas border with large hail and strong winds as the primary threats through the afternoon.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High – 91; Low – 59. Hot and dry today with a steady afternoon breeze. Mild and clear tonight.

PUEBLO: High – 98; Low – 60. Very hot and dry today with a steady afternoon breeze. Warm and clear tonight.

CANON CITY: High – 94; Low – 62. Hot and dry today with a light afternoon breeze. Warm and clear tonight.

WOODLAND PARK: High – 80; Low – 53. Nice and warm today with a few clouds through the afternoon. Mild and clear tonight.

TRI-LAKES: High – 80s; Low – 50s. Hot and dry today with a light afternoon breeze. Mild and clear tonight.

PLAINS: High – 90s/100s; Low – 60s. Very hot and dry today with storms likely in the afternoon from western Las Animas county through Baca, Bent and Prowers counties. Large hail and strong winds would be likely in any storms that develop today.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High – 90s; Low – 60s. Mainly hot and dry but a few storms could develop over the Raton Mesa and then quickly move east.


WEEKEND OUTLOOK OR NEXT WEATHER MAKER
Tuesday looks like another hot and dry day across southern Colorado but we could see a few high based storms over the mountains with more wind than rain. Storms are looking like a possibility for the 4th of July, especially over the typical taller terrain areas. Monsoon flow tries to work back into the forecast starting Thursday and possibly sticking around through Friday. This would bring stronger rain chances back into southern Colorado for those two days.
