Hot, Humid, Chance of Storms Sunday

Hot, Humid, Chance of Storms Sunday

Partly cloudy Friday with highs in the mid to upper 70s.

A severe-weather warning across part of Florida was extended south to Broward County on Monday, as the National Weather Service warned that things could get windy, hot and wet.

A cold front sparked off a few heavy storms over Northeastern Alabama on Saturday morning and again in the afternoon. A few heavy rains could produce isolated flooding along the I-25 corridor, but the best flooding concerns remain in the mountains and on the burn scars. Highs will be slightly cooler but still think we'll be in the low to mid 90s with heat indices in the upper 90s to around 100°.

Severe Weather Expected Tonight

The rain chances will continue through the workweek. Highs will be in the lower to middle 80s with light winds. A few lingering showers may be possible, too. When it's not raining, expect plenty of clouds with occasional breaks of hazy sunshine and a rather brisk and tropical breeze, with seasonably warm high temperatures in the low to mid 80s. Storms should clear El Paso, Pueblo and western Las Animas counties generally after 5pm and move east and southeast to the Kansas border.

Sunday, the pick of the weekend (and maybe even of the entire 7-day), will be the relief that we've been searching for. While we could see some development in the evening, we will be monitoring an organized cluster of storms north of the state.
