Isolated Evening Thunderstorms and Poor Air Quality

Tonight: The strong to severe thunderstorms that crossed through northern/eastern Colorado Springs this afternoon have weakened significantly, with a few stronger storms still in Fremont and Lincoln Counties. Expect the precipitation to come to an end shortly for everyone in El Paso County with the other isolated thunderstorms fizzling out by 9pm. Keep an eye on our local burn scars as brief heavy rainfall could create flash flooding conditions. Gradually turning mostly clear along the I-25 corridor this evening with temperatures to 59 degrees in Colorado Springs and 62 in Pueblo.

Sunday: Plenty of morning sunshine with increasing cloud coverage by early afternoon. High temperatures running a few degrees above normal, to 86 in Colorado Springs and 91 in Pueblo. Isolated afternoon showers and thunderstorms are again possible in Colorado Springs/ Pueblo, but the best chance for severe weather is out in the far eastern Colorado plains.

Extended: The trend of afternoon thunderstorms will continue for the week ahead with high temperatures in the upper 80s and 90s all week in Colorado Springs. Side note, air quality has obviously been a problem in central Colorado as smoke from multiple fires along I-70 is being transported as far east as Kansas. Be sure if you're among the more sensitive groups to poor air quality to limit the amount of time you spend outside. Air quality advisories are in place tonight, expect more to be reissued through the start of next week.
