Overview: One more stormy day before some drier air works over the area. We expect some windy and cooler weather later next week.
Today: The sky should remain mostly sunny for the Race For The Cure events this morning and the air temperature will be pretty comfortable. Becoming partly cloudy and a bit windy at times with scattered showers and thunderstorms likely during the afternoon and evening hours. The strongest cells today could reach severe criteria with damaging wind gusts and large hail the primary threats, and many other storms will produce localized heavy rain, frequent lightning, gusty wind and small hail. Should any downpours interact with local burn scars there will be a threat for flash flooding. High temperatures should reach the 70s and 80s for the plains with mainly 70s over the mountains and mountain valleys.
Tonight: Scattered showers and thunderstorms will drift east and gradually end with a clearing sky through the night. By morning the air should have cooled into the 50s to near 60 for the plains with 40s to lower 50s over the mountains and mountain valleys.
Extended: Much drier air will work over the area early next week with isolated thunderstorms confined to the Continental Divide or the far eastern plains near the Colorado/Kansas state line. Wednesday should be windy as a cold front moves over the state. Right now it appears most of the precipitation with the Wednesday cold front will miss us to the north but it’s still possible that brief showers may clip the Pikes Peak Region most likely on Thursday. Friday and Saturday look to be mostly sunny with high temperatures in the 70s and 80s .
