Sun: High: 84 Low: 69 A.M. clouds then partly cloudy.

Despite a cold front moving in on the area, we'll still be very hot with temperatures peaking right around noon to 1pm.

Most of the day should be dry but the risk for storms will rapidly increase by the evening and especially overnight.

Severe Weather Expected Tonight
Weather outlook: Tracking rain and storms

Take advantage of Friday because another cold front will approach the region in time for the weekend and will linger around for several days. The storm is expected to produce rainfall amounts between three-quarters of an inch and an inch and a quarter, NWS said. Otherwise, we stay mostly cloudy and muggy, with lows mainly in the low 70s. The severe weather is over, but the rain continues as scattered showers and a few rumbles are expected through the weekend. Monday still brings the chance for a few showers and thunderstorms.

Highs will be in the upper 80s. Storms should clear El Paso, Pueblo and western Las Animas counties generally after 5pm and move east and southeast to the Kansas border. The more typical afternoon storm pattern returns by Tuesday and Wednesday of next week, with more of a scattered coverage across our entire area. With the dry air and lower rain chances that will allow our temperatures to reach the upper 80s and bring us just a bit above normal. This will still allow storms to transition from the coast to inland areas through the day.
