Extended outlook forecast:
The 4th of July will begin with an early morning cold front that will drop highs in the plains by a couple of degrees. Winds will be breezy behind this cold front, out of the north. This front actually acts to stabilize the atmosphere a bit, which will lower storm chances in general. There is still an isolated thunderstorm potential in the afternoon for El Paso County.

The evening will be generally into the 60s and 70s for fireworks time between 9-10 pm and mostly clear across the region.
