Tonight's Forecast:
Early this evening, storms will continue across parts of Southern Colorado, especially over the Plains. Eventually, the rain should push into Kansas later tonight, resulting in dry skies and seasonal overnight temperatures.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 59; High: 92. Mostly clear skies in the morning will turn cloudy by the afternoon, with another round of strong thunderstorms possible across the Pikes Peak Region.

PUEBLO: Low: 62; High: 97. The heat is back on for your Thursday in Pueblo. We should get a little help from Mother Nature by late afternoon thanks to another round of thunderstorms.

CANON CITY: Low: 61; High: 94. We'll warm back into the middle 90s on Thursday. Afternoon thunderstorms should help to cool us down, with small hail and heavy rain possible.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 52; High: 83. Warm and sunny early, with increasing clouds and a good chance of afternoon thunderstorms across Teller County.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 50s; High: 80s/90s. Dry skies in the morning will give way to a pretty good chance of scattered afternoon thunderstorms. Storms across northern El Paso County could be on the strong to severe side.

PLAINS: Low: 60s; High: 90s. We'll see a similar weather pattern on Thursday, with scattered afternoon and evening thunderstorms across the Plains. Some storms could be strong to severe.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 50s/60s; High: 90s. Hazy skies in the morning, with mid to late afternoon thunderstorms expected across far southern parts of the state.

Extended Outlook:
Thunderstorm chances will fizzle out for the Springs, Canon City and Pueblo by Friday, with a rain-free and hot weekend on tap for most of Southern Colorado. Isolated to spotty thunderstorms will be possible over Teller County on Friday before we dry out in the higher elevations this weekend.
