Today’s Forecast:
We're expecting generally drier skies across southern Colorado today, but there will still be some rain to watch in the afternoon and evening across the mountains. Residual monsoon moisture will spin showers and storms out of the San Juans and into the San Luis Valley, as well as north along the Sangre De Cristos up towards Salida. There will be some flooding concerns around the burn scars, especially near the Decker and Hayden Pass scars.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High: 79; Low: 58. Cloudy and muggy with dry skies likely and warm daytime temperatures.

PUEBLO: High: 84; Low: 62. Partly sunny and muggy today with dry and warm afternoon conditions.

CANON CITY: High: 81; Low: 60. Partly sunny and muggy with dry and warm daytime conditions.

WOODLAND PARK: High: 69; Low: 49. Cloudy and a bit cool with a chance for spotty evening showers and thunderstorms.

TRI-LAKES: High: 70s; Low: 40s. Cloudy and mild with a small and unlikely chance for an isolated evening thunderstorm.

PLAINS: High: 80s; Low: 60s. Cloudy, warm, and muggy with dry skies expected during the day.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High: 70s; Low: 50s. Cloudy, muggy, and dry today but isolated thunderstorms are possible in the mountains west of I-25.

Extended Outlook:
Heavy rain and flooding will be the primary threat for tomorrow's thunderstorms. Storms will be back in the afternoon across southern Colorado, and east winds could feed and produce very heavy rain. We'll be much drier on Wednesday other than a few stray mountain storms with cooler air back by Thursday.
