A few showers and thunderstorms will be possible through the evening. A few of these could produce brief, heavy downpours and damaging wind. I can't completely rule out small hail with a couple thunderstorms. Once the sun sets, the chance for rain will quickly diminish.
Overnight skies should be partly cloudy to mostly clear. Lows will drop to the 50°s. (Colorado Springs: 50° | Pueblo: 52°)
Temperatures will start to rise Friday and through the first half of the weekend. Expect to see highs going from Thursday's 70°s to 80°s and 90°s through Saturday.
I'm going to keep a small chance (15%) of rain in the forecast for Pueblo and places in far southeastern Colorado Friday. Otherwise, expect to see partly cloudy skies across the area with high temperatures in the 80°s. (Colorado Springs: 84° | Pueblo: 88°)
MEASURING UP JUNE
Typically when temperatures are above normal for a month precipitation for the month is below normal and vice versa. This year is an exception for Colorado Springs. Through June 11, Colorado Springs is 2.3° above normal. (Seven out of eleven days of the month has been above normal.) Interestingly, Colorado Springs is above normal for precipitation this month. Through June 11, Colorado Springs has received 1.13" of precipitation which works out to 0.13" above normal.
Whereas in Pueblo, things are relatively typical. Through June 11, Pueblo is 3.4° above normal. Like Colorado Springs, Pueblo has had seven of the eleven days above normal. In the rain gauge, Pueblo has received 0.37", 0.14" below normal. - Meteorologist John Dissauer
