Detailed Forecast

Today:  It is going to be a very active day in southern Colorado with a high potential for strong to severe storms this afternoon.  The strongest storms will be associated with a developing cold front located primarily north of Hwy 50, these storms could impact the Pikes Peak Region.  Storms that develop will be capable of producing large hail, damaging winds, heavy rain and tornadoes.  The strongest storms are expected during the afternoon, with storm intensity expected to decrease by this evening.  Rain will continue through Thursday night.  Since heavy rain will be possible, flash flooding over and near area burn scars will be a concern.  Highs will be noticeably cooler, with highs only getting into the 60s and 70s... temperatures will drop behind the afternoon/evening cold front.

Tonight: Once the front passes, the threat for severe weather drops, but showers and continue. Lows get into the 30s and 40s tonight and a north wind in the 10-20 mph range will put an extra chill on it. Snow levels drop low enough to deliver some wet snow in Teller county. A Winter Storm Watch is in effect for Pikes Peak through Friday at 5 p.m.

Extended:  Friday will be another cool and wet day, however the potential for strong to severe storms looks to be significantly less than Thursday.  This weekend, there will be a daily chance for isolated storms during the afternoon, so plan accordingly!  Temperatures will begin to warm back into the 70s and 80s by Sunday and Memorial Day.  Stick with your StormTracker 13 Weather Team as this active pattern sets up in southern Colorado!  To track the conditions along with us be sure to equip yourself with the Stormtracker 13 Weather App - just search for "Stormtracker 13 Weather" in the app store on your iPhone or Android.
