Today’s Forecast:
Hot and dry is the forecast today for most of Colorado, but there could be some strong to severe storms that develop out east late today. A dryline coming off the mountains will work to generate storms north of the Palmer Divide, and south in Las Animas to Baca Counties. These storms could be strong to severe, and a few of them could curl into Kiowa County at the end of the day.
