Hot and steamy afternoon with an isolated thunderstorm


Scattered and isolated storms are possible in the Pikes Peak region today, but newer modeling is suggesting a better, more organized line of storms is possible through the overnight hours.

While it won't rain throughout the day Sunday, a chance of showers and storms will continue through the afternoon. Some could be slow moving and produce very heavy rain, leaving to flooding in urban, small stream and poor drainage areas.

Tomorrow: Mostly cloudy with scattered midday, showers/storms. Otherwise partly to mostly cloudy.

One more day of heat and humidity remains until we see changes to the forecast. Storms that form this week have the potential to become strong with gusty winds, frequent lightning, and heavy rain.

The cold front passes through the state Tuesday night, and the threat of showers and storms should end by midnight or shortly after.

Comfortable conditions are expected for Wednesday through Friday, with daytime highs expected in the low 80s. Morning temperatures will range in the lower 70s. Winds NE 5-10 miles per hour. Highs will stay in the 80s and lower 90s through midweek then soar back into the mid to upper 90s Thursday and Friday.

"Other than perhaps some lingering showers early Wednesday, mainly dry weather is anticipated for the rest of the work week with warm afternoons but lower humidity", forecasters said.
