Tonight's Forecast: It has been a wild night of weather so far, and we're not out of the woods just yet. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will remain likely across parts of Southern Colorado through around midnight. Most of the activity will be focused over the Arkansas River Valley, the I-25 corridor and mountain areas. As the rain tapers off later tonight, we'll be left with a partly cloudy and mild night.

Flash flooding has already been an issue this evening in Pueblo, so please remember that if/when you encounter deeper waters on the roadway, do not pass through it. Turn Around, Don't Drown!

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 57; High: 85. A mild morning will give way to a chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms by the afternoon. Some thunderstorms could be on the strong to severe side.

PUEBLO: Low: 61; High: 93. After hail and significant flooding on Saturday night, Sunday's weather should be a little less active. The heat will be back, along with the potential for spotty afternoon showers and non-severe thunderstorms.

CANON CITY: Low: 60; High: 89. Warmer than average temperatures will continue in Canon City as we close out the weekend warm and toasty. If planning some time outside, be prepared for afternoon showers and thunderstorms.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 49; High: 76. May will end on a warm and stormy note for Teller County. Dry skies early will give way to scattered afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 50s; High: 70s/80s. We'll see a dry and mild start to our Sunday across northern El Paso County. Storms will fire off in the afternoon, but should be fairly scattered in nature.

PLAINS: Low: 50s/60s; High: 80s/90s. Sunday looks like a much drier day across the Plains. If we do see anything develop on Sunday, they would likely form across the Arkansas River Valley.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 50s; High: 80s. Nice and dry in the morning, with a warm and stormy afternoon to follow. Thunderstorms that do from should stay below severe levels.

Extended Outlook: We'll continue on our current trajectory for the first week of June. Highs will be well above average, and thunderstorms will be possible each afternoon. Drier air could move back into the forecast late next week, with no sign of a major cool down on the way for Southern Colorado.
