After nearly two inches of rain fell in spots on Wednesday, we could be in for another drenching on Thursday.
Wednesday's rain fell mostly along the Arkansas River. Today could be a different story, as a brisk northeasterly wind will favor areas along the Palmer Divide and the higher elevations of Teller County. That means the heavy rain focus could be right around Colorado Springs and the burn scars at Waldo Canyon and Black Forest. Rain could begin as early as late morning and continue into early evening before fading away overnight. A pattern favoring scattered showers and thunderstorms, especially in the mountains, returns Friday.
Temperatures will be held down this afternoon by cloud cover and rainfall. High temperatures for nearly all of Southeastern Colorado will be no warmer than mid-to-upper 70's. Teller County will probably stay below 70 today.
