Hot air takes over the forecast today with only a few thunderstorms making it out of the mountains through the afternoon. Storm chances over the plains east of I-25 are actually better than they are in the I-25 corridor, since there is more moisture out east. Any storms that do develop through the afternoon will dry out quickly this evening with a very warm night on tap into early Thursday morning.
