Posted at 5:52 AM, Jul 16, 2020

Today’s Forecast:
We're in for another day of strong to severe thunderstorms, but severe weather looks weaker and more isolated compared to yesterday. We could still see large hail (quarter-sized), 60 mph wind gusts, and localized flooding for areas that saw heavy rain yesterday. Rain and thunderstorms will come in multiple waves today and likely last a lot longer into the late day and evening.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High: 88; Low: 58. Scattered strong, possibly severe storms will happen through the afternoon and early evening. Flooding is a large possibility in slower-moving storms, especially in areas like Security that saw heavy rain yesterday.

PUEBLO: High: 94; Low: 61. Scattered strong to severe storms are possible today with quarter size hail, strong winds, and localized flooding all possible. Flooding is more of a concern in areas that saw heavy rain yesterday.

CANON CITY: High: 93; Low: 64. Scattered strong storms are possible today but severe weather chances are on the low end. We could still see small to nickel-sized hail and gusty winds, and slow-moving storms could cause localized flooding for areas that saw heavy rain yesterday.

WOODLAND PARK: High: 83; Low: 48. Scattered storms are possible today but severe weather is not expected. Lightning and small hail are possible but not overly likely.

TRI-LAKES: High: 80s; Low: 50s. Scattered shower and thunderstorms today, and while one or two could be strong, severe weather, in general, is not expected. There could be small hail and lightning in a few rogue storms.

PLAINS: High: 90s; Low: 60s. Strong to severe storms are more likely east of El Paso and Pueblo counties across the plains, but storms will be much more isolated and scattered. The three main threats are quarter-sized hail, 60 mph wind gusts, and localized flooding.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High: 90s; Low: 60s. Scattered storms are possible this afternoon and evening, and while one or two could be strong, severe weather is not expected.

Extended Outlook:
We're going to get much hotter over the next two days, and storms will become much spottier, staying mostly in and around the mountains. We'll start to see bigger storms back in the region by Sunday, with a chance for severe storms on Monday. We'll generally be a bit cooler by mid-week of next week, with more chances for rain and storms.
