Hot today, severe weather possible Friday

THURSDAY: Things are going to get even warmer today, with potentially record-breaking heat for many across southern Colorado. Mid 90s are expected for Colorado Springs, with widespread 100s further south and over the Plains. An isolated mountain storm is possible again, but lower elevations remain mostly dry. A few sprinkles are possible across El Paso county, and these light showers could produce some gusty outflow winds! We’ll continue to see and smell smoke from prescribed burns as well. The eastern Plains have the chance of seeing isolated severe storms by late afternoon, with strong winds and maybe some larger hail.
