Today’s Forecast:
Storms are still in the forecast today, but far less widespread compared to what we saw on Thursday. Flash Flood Watches are in effect again through the southern mountains from the afernoon to the evening hours with special focus over the Junkins and Spring burn scars. The heaviest rain in the region will fall across the mountains, especially from Fremont County south to Las Animas and Costilla counties. Scattered and spotty storms are still possible across the plains and I-25 corridor, with enough humid air to drop heavy rain where ever storms land. Tonight we'll dry up and start Saturday with warm and dry skies.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High - 88; Low - 60. Hot and muggy today with isolated thunderstorms are possible this afternoon and evening. Storm chances remain better west of town over the mountains.

PUEBLO: High - 94; Low - 63. Hot and muggy today with scattered thunderstorms possible in the afternoon and early evening. Heavy rain, lightning, and small hail are all possible in storms.

CANON CITY: High - 92; Low - 64. Hot and muggy today with thunderstorms possible in the afternoon and evening hours, even though most moisture will stay in the mountains around town. Heavy rain, lightning and small hail are possible.

WOODLAND PARK: High - 80; Low - 52. Warm and muggy with a few isolated thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening hours. Heavy rain and lightning are both possible in storms later today and tonight.

TRI-LAKES: High - 80s; Low - 50s. Hot and muggy today with a small chance for isolated thunderstorms this afternoon and evening. Storm chances remain better west of town over the mountains.

PLAINS: High - 90s; Low - 60s. Hot and muggy today with spotty thunderstorms possible in the afternoon and early evening. Heavy rain, lightning, and small hail are all possible in storms.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High - 80s; Low - 50s. Heavy rain and thunderstorm action over the mountains west of both towns later today and tonight, prompting flash flood watches for the southern mountains and Spring/Junkins burn scars. Chances for rain along Walsenburg and Trinidad are fairly low, but scattered storms are still possible in the afternoon and evening hours with heavy rain, lightning, and small hail all possible.

Extended Outlook:
Stronger and more widespread storms return on Saturday. Storms will start over the mountains and spread east to the I-25 corridor and plains from the afternoon through the overnight hours. Severe weather is not expected at this time but heavy rain and a few strong storms are expected through Saturday night. Sunday will feature a few scattered storms in the mountains and adjacent plains, but overall drier weather starts to show up Sunday and lands a little better by Monday and Tuesday.
