This afternoon will be partly cloudy and we will see some warming but stay slightly below average. It will be a comfortable day overall.

There is a chance of thunderstorms this afternoon favoring the Pikes Peak Region and eastern plains. There is potential for storms today to be a bit stronger than what we have had recently. Some hail is possible as well as strong wind gusts.
