Today’s Forecast:
Another day for showers and storms across southern Colorado, some of which could pack a punch through the afternoon. We'll start dry but cloud in the morning, followed by storms developing over the mountains around and just after lunch. Storms will move east into the I-25 corridor and plains through the afternoon, dropping heavy rain, lightning and small hail as they go. While minor flooding and small hail are both a threat for later today, severe weather chances are not very good across southern Colorado. Rain will quickly dry up across the plains early this evening and leave us with a mild and dry night.
