The hottest day of the year so far comes Saturday with highs in the upper 80s in Colorado Springs and mid 90s for Pueblo! Isolated showers and storms in the mountains are possible Saturday afternoon and evening, and we could even see a stray storm in eastern El Paso county in the evening.
Storms are more likely Sunday, primarily in the mountains, but out to the Pikes Peak Region and down near Walsenburg and Trinidad. Pueblo and the plains east look dry on Sunday.
Next week looks dry and very hot again.
