We “probably” won’t see record temperatures today, but Colorado Springs will cut it awfully close! Overall it will be cooler than the last two days but there is still lots of heat left in southern Colorado this afternoon thanks to down slope flow. Cloud cover will move into and out of the mountains to the plains this afternoon helping to cool things down a bit by the end of the day. Showers and thunderstorms are also possible today, mainly over the mountains but isolated activity could spread to the plains this evening.
COLORADO SPRINGS: High – 88; Low – 57. Near record temperatures today (record is 89) with cloud cover increasing through the day. Showers or sprinkles are possible this afternoon but rain is more likely early tomorrow morning anytime after 3am.
PUEBLO: High – 95; Low – 62. Very hot today with heavier cloud cover in the mid to late afternoon. An isolated shower or sprinkle is possible later in the afternoon but rain chances are better early tomorrow morning anytime after 3 to 4am.
CANON CITY: High – 92; Low – 64. Hot today but cloud cover increasing through the day will help make being outside more tolerable. Showers and a weak thunderstorms are possible this afternoon and then again early tomorrow morning anytime after 2am.
WOODLAND PARK: High – 78; Low – 49. Warm and cloudy with scattered showers and thunderstorms possible through the afternoon. Rain will likely return early tomorrow morning, mainly between 2 to 5am.
TRI-LAKES: High – 80s; Low – 50s. Very warm and cloudy today with scattered showers and sprinkles possible through the afternoon and then again early tomorrow morning anytime after 3am.
PLAINS: High – 90s; Low – 60s. Very hot again today with cloud cover moving in from the mid to late afternoon, but not quick enough to help out the oppressive heat. A few weak showers are possible this evening and then again early tomorrow morning anytime after 5am.
WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High – 90s; Low – 50s/60s. Hot with cloud cover increasing through the day and scattered showers and thunderstorms this afternoon, especially off the Spanish Peaks and Raton Mesa. Rain and a few thunderstorms are likely again early tomorrow morning anytime after 3am.
Rain and thunderstorms are going to be possible late tonight through Thursday morning as a large wave of low pressure crosses through Colorado. Timing for the Front Range and I-25 corridor looks to generally be anytime between 3 to 6am with the plains seeing a few showers into the late morning. The rest of Thursday will be much sunnier with seasonal temperatures. Friday we can’t rule out a few isolated showers over the mountains but much of the area will likely stay dry with gorgeous afternoon temperatures.
