Tonight’s Forecast:
Showers and thunderstorms will form over the mountain and push east into the I-25 corridor and plains through the overnight hours. Heavy rain will cause flooding concerns over the southern mountains, especially near burn scar areas. Spotty and localized flooding will be possible across the I-25 corridor and plains overnight if multiple rounds of heavy rain hit the same spots repeatedly. Dry skies will start showing up a few hours after midnight across the eastern plains, with mainly dry skies expected by Friday morning.

Friday looks hot and much more dry through the region. A few scattered thunderstorms will develop over the mountains and possibly jump into the Pikes Peak Region into the afternoon, but areas like Pueblo and the plains to the east will likely stay dry.
