The main story in weather this week is well above average heat with near daily isolated thunderstorm chances over some of the higher terrain. A large and stable jet stream ridge is in place and that means we’ll bring heat to stay through the coming weekend. Highs today will soar into the upper 80s in Colorado Springs and low 90s for Pueblo. The winds will stay light and gentle today with is going to help keep fire danger on the lower end this afternoon. We could see a few isolated thunderstorms pop across some of the higher terrain around the Pikes Peak region and briefly run over parts of El Paso county like Colorado Springs. Most of us should plan on stay dry and those that do see rain should see it move quickly and be done before sunset.
