Today’s Forecast:
Storms will be a bit more scattered and limited today across the viewing area, with the best area for development in and around northern Fremont, Teller, and El Paso Counties in the afternoon. It'll be very hot today with only a few sparse thunderstorms in the southern mountains. Overnight we'll be dry and mild with lows in the 50s.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High: 87; Low: 57. Storms will start up in the mountains west of town around lunchtime and push through the city in the early afternoon, some of which could be strong with the stronger storms expected east of the city in El Paso County. We could see a few spotty showers and thunderstorms through the remainder of the afternoon.

PUEBLO: High: 96; Low: 59. We will likely stay dry today in Pueblo but with hot conditions in the afternoon as highs climb into the 90s.

CANON CITY: High: 92; Low: 60. Hot and for the most part dry, but a spotty afternoon thunderstorm could run into or right by Canon City. Most of our storms are expected to stay north in the mountains.

WOODLAND PARK: High: 76; Low: 50. Spotty and scattered early afternoon thunderstorms are expected to develop in Teller County and could move into Woodland Park with small hail, lightning, and brief spurts of heavy rain. Storms should stay non severe and the end of the day will likely be dry.

TRI-LAKES: High: 80s; Low: 50s. Much like Colorado springs, storm chances start up around lunchtime and move east through the afternoon, diminishing in the evening. Storms should stay non severe but lightning and maybe a few heavier showers could happen.

PLAINS: High: 90s; Low: 50/60s. There will be some storms in the eastern plains that move out of El Paso County today, but most of the plains will be dry and VERY hot with highs in the mid to upper 90s.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High: 80/90s; Low: 50s. We're going to see a few spotty showers try and form over the mountains west of I-25 between Walsenburg and Trinidad, but both cities have a much better chance today of staying dry with lots of afternoon heat.

Extended Outlook:
Friday is going to be hot and dry, with temperatures likely reaching the warmest values of the year so far. Storms will be back on Saturday but with the best coverage expected into and across the mountains. Very strong winds and high fire danger are back on Sunday and Monday. Cooler weather filters in Monday but more so for Tuesday.
