We'll be warm today with highs in the upper 70s and mid 80s across the plains.
Storms will start in the mountains between 12 to 3 pm, and then push east into the plains. We'll see storms along I-25 anytime between 4 to 8 pm tonight, losing strength quickly as they move east and we lose daylight.
We won't see any severe weather today, but there could be some heavy rain in the southern mountains and valleys with really gusty wind across the plains.
