Friday, July 25th
Happy Friday! Temperatures are on track for another toasty afternoon in 90s once again. Storm development has also begin this afternoon - mainly west of the interstate. The flash flood risk for Waldo Canyon is a bit enhanced this afternoon between 2pm & 5pm. Heads up if traveling on HWY 24. Storms will try to push east of I-25 this afternoon during that window as well, bringing the chance for some periods of wet weather to the Springs and Pueblo.
Heading into the weekend, if you're making plans to be outdoors try to plan them for Saturday. This looks to be the driest day of the two, though the hottest, with temperatures in the 90s yet again. Most storm activity seems to favor the mountains, though a stray storm could push east of I-25.
Sunday ushers in a pattern change and we see a shift to cooler and wetter conditions. Highs will drop to the 80s and low 90s with the potential widespread storms by the afternoon capable of producing heavy rains - we'll be keeping a very close eye on area burn scars on Sunday because of the potential for these storms to drop large amounts of rain in localized areas.
Cooler and stormy afternoons hang around through Thursday as activity begins to taper off and become more spotty late next week.
With the potential for some very wet afternoons next week we will be keeping a very close eye on burn scars due to the risk for flash flooding. Make sure to stay informed with the latest by following us on social media (KKTV 11 Weather, KKTV 11 News) and checking in with kktv.com/weather.
