Today’s Forecast:
Much like yesterday, storms are back in the forecast from the afternoon through the evening hours. We're going to see the best chance for daytime rain west of I-25 in the mountains, but we'll see storms drift east into the I-25 corridor from the end of the day through the early evening. Storms could be strong to severe, mainly from the Pikes Peak Region up to Denver, for quarter sized hail and strong wind gusts. Storms will diminish by or just after midnight across the plains and southern mountains.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High: 76; Low: 51. Isolated strong daytime thunderstorms are possible, but our best chance for storms happens from the end of the day through the evening. Quarter sized hail and 50 to 60 mph wind gusts are the two main storm threats late today and this evening.

PUEBLO: High: 84; Low: 55. A stray strong daytime thunderstorm is possible in Pueblo today, but our best rain chances remain sometime in this evening, likely around or after 7 pm. Severe thunderstorms are a possibility in northern Pueblo county, but storms would likely lose strength this evening as they move towards Pueblo and Pueblo West.

CANON CITY: High: 81; Low: 55. We'll probably stay dry during the day today but strong to severe storms are a possibility from the end of the day through the evening hours. Severe chances are best to the north and east of Canon City, with quarter size hail and strong winds as the main storm threats.

WOODLAND PARK: High: 67; Low: 44. Isolated daytime storms are possible but the best chance for storms will be from the end of the day through the early evening. Strong to severe storms are possible in Teller County and Woodland Park, with nickle to quarter size hail, strong winds, and lightning as the main threats.

TRI-LAKES: High: 60s; Low: 40s. A stray daytime storm is a possibility in the Tri Lakes region, but storms seem most likely from the end of the day through the early evening hours. Strong to severe storms are a decent possibility at the end of the day or early this evening, with quarter size hail and strong winds as the two main threats.

PLAINS: High: 80s; Low: 50s. We are likely to stay warm and dry during the day today, but overnight scattered storms are likely, mainly along and north of highway 50. Storms could be strong tonight, but severe weather chances remain best in El Paso County. Any storm would likely dry up or die off around midnight.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High: 70s; Low: 50s. We'll likely stay dry from Walsenburg to Trinidad during the day, but scattered daytime storms over the mountains to the west will be possible. Storms seem more likely tonight, but storms will likely stay non severe along I-25. Heavier rain is possible over the mountains and San Luis Valley, elevating burn scar flooding concerns for the Spring burn scar.

Extended Outlook:
We're going to be much warmer over the next few days, but we'll keep plenty of storm chances out through next week. Storms over the next few days could be strong to severe, but without good wind shear, severe chances will remain low and spotty. The heat will be felt most on Saturday and Monday with highs in the mid 80s in Colorado Springs and low to mid 90s for Pueblo.
