Cloud cover should be a little thicker today, compared the last few days, and that will help keep us nice and cool through the afternoon. Moist, up slope winds will bring rain and thunderstorms to the mountains and eventually over to the I-25 corridor. Heavy rains across the high terrain are a big possibility this afternoon and as such, we’ll need to keep a close eye on all burn scar areas. Tonight we should be completely dry through the region by midnight and wake up to a chilly morning Friday.
COLORADO SPRINGS: High – 70; Low – 52. Cloudy with occasional peaks of sun from the late morning through the early afternoon. We’ll stay dry through the morning and early afternoon but rain will move out of the mountains this afternoon anytime after 3 to 4pm. We could see a locally heavy rain or two through the city but no severe weather is expected.
PUEBLO: High – 77; Low – 57. A mix of clouds with brief sunshine today and below average temperatures. Rain and thunderstorms are possible early this evening anytime after 6pm with heavy rain a possibility.
CANON CITY: High – 74; Low – 56. Rain and thunderstorms are expected to cross through Canon City anytime after 3pm today with heavy rain and spotty flooding as the biggest storm threat.
WOODLAND PARK: High – 64; Low – 44. Rain and thunderstorms are expected to start up around 2pm today and last through the end of the day. Heavy rain is a big threat from storms today so isolated flooding will need to be watched for, especially near the High Chateau burn scar.
TRI-LAKES: High – 60s; Low – 40s. Cloudy and dry until the afternoon when showers and thunderstorms move into the area. Timing for the rain looks to be anytime after 2pm through the end of the day.
PLAINS: High – 70s; Low – 50s. A few showers in the morning across the far eastern plains but most of you stay dry and cool today. Rain will move out of the I-25 corridor into the central plains early this evening, mainly after 7pm but quickly die off as temperatures drop.
WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High – 70s; Low – 50s. Heavy rain in the mountains west of the southern I-25 corridor is expected with scattered showers and thunderstorms making it to I-25 in the mid afternoon around Trinidad and early this evening up closer to Walsenburg. Flooding near the Spring burn scar is a possibility.
Friday is looking pretty good out there! Continued up slope flow keeps a chance for rain in the mountains and I-25 corridor, but rain chances for everyone still look much smaller than we were seeing earlier in the week. The weekend really warms up and we stay dry for most of the extended forecast.
