So far today, air quality in Colorado has been abysmal. Fluctuating between unhealthy for sensitive groups and unhealthy for everyone. A steady ridge of high pressure across the southwest is responsible for northerly winds transporting smoke from I-70 into southern Colorado. Expect air qualities to continue to be poor through at least the start of next week with no real relief till our wildfires are more under control.
High temperature records were broken today in Colorado Springs and Pueblo as we touched 95 degrees in the Springs and Pueblo hit a whopping 103. As we move into our Sunday forecast expect temperatures to reach about 94 in El Paso County and 100 degrees in Pueblo, both locations just one degree away from the record books. Isolated showers and thunderstorms will develop during the afternoon along the Rampart Range and move south through the evening, staying mostly confined to the I-25 corridor. Overall severity of the storms tomorrow look quiet low.
Heat, Haze, and afternoon thunderstorms will look to persist through the week ahead. With temperatures pushing into the mid 90s nearly everyday this week in Colorado Springs, it's not out of the question to see daily temperature records set everyday through Thursday.
