Leftover showers this evening with storms returning Wednesday

Posted at 6:12 PM, Apr 02, 2019

Tonight’s Forecast:
Today will end wet as showers and a few thunderstorms push out of the mountains and into the forecast area. Showers will slide off the mountains and into the I-25 corridor through the late afternoon and evening hours, with a few rumbles of thunder and some lightning possible. Hail is not expected from any showers or storms today, but light snow in the mountains, especially around Teller county, is possible through the evening. Any snow that falls tonight would come with little to no accumulation for elevations below 10,000 feet.

Stay with the First Alert5 Weather Team as we’re looking at the possibility or nickel-sized hail Wednesday in northern El Paso County as storms ramp-up.

Severe weather is possible on Wednesday through the eastern edge of the viewing area, mainly out in the Kansas border. While small hail, mainly pea-sized, could fall in the Pikes Peak region, it’s still unlikely with how cool we’ll be in the afternoon. Thursday and Friday look dry but thunderstorms once again return by Saturday.
