Today’s Forecast:
Big heat across southern Colorado today with a few thunderstorms across the high country. Temperatures will soar into the 90s and a few triple digits out of the mountains and into the plains through the afternoon, even with heavier cloud cover by the end of the day. Storms will be scattered through the mountains today with just a few storms hopping out into the I-25 corridor and quickly dying through the end of the day. Storms today do not look severe, but lightning and a few heavy rains over the mountains are possible. Tonight we'll be dry with lows in the lower 60s.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High - 93; Low - 61. Hot and dry through the morning with just a few isolated thunderstorms in the afternoon. Storms would likely die off fairly quickly after leaving the mountains and severe weather is not expected.

PUEBLO: High - 100; Low - 64. Sunny and very hot today with dry skies expected from the afternoon through the evening hours. Drink plenty of water this afternoon when you're working outside.

CANON CITY: High - 96; Low - 67. Hot and dry through the morning with just a few isolated thunderstorms in the afternoon. Storms would likely die off fairly quickly after leaving the mountains and severe weather is not expected.

WOODLAND PARK: High - 83; Low - 52. Warm and dry through the morning with scattered thunderstorms in the afternoon. Storms should stay non severe but lightning and a few heavy rains are possible.

TRI-LAKES: High - 80s; Low - 50s. Sunny and dry to start the day with thunderstorms developing in the mid afternoon. Storms could be strong quickly after they develop with heavy rain, small hail, and some strong wind as the biggest threats.

PLAINS: High - 90/100s; Low - 60s. Sunny and very hot today with dry skies expected from the afternoon through the evening hours. Drink plenty of water this afternoon when you're working outside.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High - 90s; Low - 60s. Hot and mostly dry along I-25 from Walsenburg to Trinidad with a better chance for scattered thunderstorms west into the mountains from the afternoon to the early evening. If any storms hop out into the I-25 corridor they should stay non severe.

Extended Outlook:
Monsoonal moisture starts to push deeper into Colorado on Wednesday, giving us more storms through the mountains and a few more storms that will hop into the I-25 corridor and plains through the afternoon. It will still be very hot tomorrow with mid 80s in the mountains and 90s to triple digits across I-25 and the plains. Thursday is the next best rain chance through southern Colorado, with highs falling a few degrees and more of a widespread rain from the mountains through the plains in the afternoon and evening. Daily thunderstorms are back in the forecast from Thursday through the early part of next week.
