Colorado Springs could break a temperature record Tuesday, while areas of southeast Colorado could see temperatures in the triple digits, meteorologists say.

The National Weather Service in Pueblo predicted a high of 90 degrees Tuesday with a 10 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms between 5 p.m. and midnight in Colorado Springs.

The record for Tuesday is 92 degrees and the average 75 degrees.

Areas south and east of Colorado Springs are expected to see highs in the mid- to upper 90s. The weather service forecast a high of 97 degrees in Pueblo, 99 in La Junta and 100 in Lamar.

In addition to the possible triple-digit temperatures, some storms in the southeast part of the state could produce hail and strong wind gusts.

"Overall, temperatures well above average for this time of year and the potential for an isolated severe storm over extreme southeastern Colorado," the weather service tweeted. "Main risks for these storms will be up to 0.75" diameter hail, winds gusting up to 50 MPH, and (as always) lightning."

Wednesday's forecast for Colorado Springs is similar to Tuesday's - a high of 89 degrees with a slight chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon. The record temperature for Wednesday is 93 degrees.
