Scattered strong to severe thunderstorms will continue to move east from the mountains out through the plains until midnight.
Any severe cell should lose strength after 10 pm, but we've had multiple large hail estimations on radar since storms moved east of I-25.
We'll see more storms develop tomorrow afternoon, first over the mountains and then east through the plains.
Colorado Springs forecast: Low: 53; High: 81; Scattered storms will persist through the evening hours but no more severe weather is expected.

Large hail, strong winds, and even an isolated tornado out near Falcon, Calhan, and Black Forest are the main severe threats.
Pueblo forecast: Low: 56; High: 86; Isolated storms will roll across Pueblo county through the evening but additional severe weather is not expected at this time.

More strong to severe storms are possible tomorrow, and if we do see severe weather, large hail, strong winds, and isolated tornadoes east of Black Forest are all possible.

Plains forecast: Low: 50s; High: 80s; Strong and severe storms will continue to move east across the plains through the early evening with large hail, lightning, and localized downpours as our main threats. Hail as been estimated on radar to be anywhere from 1 to 2 inches, so if you're under a severe thunderstorm warning, please take shelter.

Extended outlook forecast:
Tuesday is going to be a high impact day if enough moisture, "humidity", stays in the atmosphere from storms tonight. We could see scattered severe thunderstorms from El Paso down to Pueblo county and east through the plains in the afternoon and evening. Large hail and strong winds would be our primary threats, but an isolated tornado cannot be overlooked in a stray storm or two near the Palmer Divide.
Isolated and spotty thunderstorms will continue to be possible across most of the region from Wednesday to Thursday. We'll be a little cooler behind a front Wednesday afternoon, but high will warm back into the 70s and 80s by the weekend.
