Today’s Forecast:
Today a cold front is moving through the plains in southern Colorado. This front will actually bring in drier air and reduce rain potential in the plains by clearing out the monsoon moisture. But the monsoon pattern remains in the mountains and that is where storms develop today. Some of the mountain storms will spill over into the I-25 corridor this evening.

Temperatures will be about 10 degrees below average in the plains, and seasonable or slightly below average in the mountains.

Colorado Springs forecast: High: 76; Low: 54.
Partly cloudy today with a chance of rain and thunderstorms between 2 pm - 9 pm.
