Today’s Forecast:
Lots of beautiful weather in the forecast today but we still need to watch the plains for strong to severe thunderstorms in the early evening. The mountains and I-25 corridor will stay dry today, but there is a solid chance for severe weather in Baca and Prowers county from 6 to 9 pm tonight. An isolated strong storm could try and develop in El Paso and Pueblo County around midnight tonight, but that chance remains fairly low.
