TONIGHT: Hazy skies will linger into the overnight hours. Temps will be comfortable out the door in the morning... 50s/60s for most.

FRIDAY: We’ll start the day dry and hazy, with smoke slowly lifting higher into the atmosphere through the afternoon hours. Temperatures continue to warm up. Expect 80s and 90s across most of the viewing area. By 2 or 3pm a couple spot storms are expected to roll out of the mountains. Storms look most prevalent in the Pikes Peak Region and Canon City. Storms will struggle to get going along the HWY 50 corridor early on-- they’ll slowly bubble over the SE plains by late in the evening.

SATURDAY: The front that brings spotty storms Friday is expected to drag along a lot of smoke from California wildfires with it into Saturday morning. This will likely be the thickest smoke we’ve seen in Southern Colorado all summer long. Expect tough breathing conditions if you have respiratory problems. You’ll want to avoid a bunch of strenuous outdoor activity Saturday too.

EARLY NEXT WEEK: Plan on continued dry time next week and the heat is back... Highs reach the 90s for many.
