Colorado Springs could see a warm, sunny and hazy Thursday with a chance of afternoon thunderstorms.

The forecasted high is 91 degrees and most of El Paso County continues to be in severe drought, according to the National Weather Service in Pueblo.

Smoke and haze from other fires across the state are visible in Manitou Springs, the fire department tweeted on Thursday.

The National Weather Service warns most of central and southern Colorado, including Colorado Springs, of extreme weather this afternoon with chances of sporadic thunderstorms, windy conditions and penny-sized hail.

The weekend is forecasted to bring thunderstorms and much needed heavy rain across the Mountains. The extreme weather warning from the National Weather Service lasts into next week.

“We may even have some flash flood issues during the first half of next week. It will be cooler too, with temperatures only reaching the 70s and 80s again,” Gazette news partner KKTV reported.
