Today’s Forecast:
Get ready for a cloudy, damp and gloomy day across southern Colorado. Rain will come out of the mountains later this afternoon and push east through the I-25 corridor and plains. Cooler, stable air will mean most of the rain we’ll see today with be light showers, but a few stronger storms are possible in eastern Baca county.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High – 69; Low – 56. Foggy through the morning and then just cloudy and cool through the afternoon. Scattered showers will try and push through the city after 2pm through the end of the day. A few more spotty showers are possible into the evening but after midnight we’ll be completely dry.

PUEBLO: High – 77; Low – 59. Warmer than Colorado Springs but still cloudy, humid and gloomy today. A  few scattered showers are possible this afternoon, mainly after 3 to 4pm. An isolated shower or two is possible through the early evening but we’ll be dry for most of the night.
