Tonight's Forecast:
Lingering showers and thunderstorms will come to an end by the middle of this evening. Dry skies and mild overnight lows will follow across Southern Colorado as we'll cool down to the 50s and 60s.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 60; High: 93. Thursday's weather will be the last super hot day for us for awhile. Afternoon thunderstorms will be possible across the Pikes Peak Region, but mainly over the foothills and mountains.

PUEBLO: Low: 62; High: 100. Upper 90s and lower 100s for just one more day Pueblo! After that, we'll welcome rain and much cooler temperatures to the forecast from Friday through Saturday.

CANON CITY: Low: 64; High: 97. Blazing hot for one more day before some welcome changes move into Fremont County on Friday. A few rain showers will also be possible Thursday afternoon.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 52; High: 83. Hazy in the morning, then turning mostly cloudy with scattered afternoon and evening thunderstorms. Severe weather is not expected on Thursday.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 50s; High: 80s/90s. Dry in the morning, with the sunshine heating things up quickly across northern El Paso County. Spotty thunderstorms are likely to develop by mid to late afternoon.

PLAINS: Low: 60s; High: 90s/100s. Our forecast across the Plains on Thursday will be hot, dry and hazy. Rain is not expected to return to our forecast until late Friday.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 50s/60s; High: 90s. Unseasonably hot August weather will continue for one more day on Thursday before we usher in some big changes by Friday and Saturday.

Extended Outlook:
A cold front will slide into Southern Colorado on Friday, with a good chance for widespread rain across the News 5 viewing area. This is good news as much of the area has been very dry this past month. Rain should move east by late Friday night before another batch of showers and storms moves in by Saturday afternoon. Temperatures behind the front will cool to comfortable levels on Saturday, with a warmer and drier day for us on Sunday.
