It's time to get outside, Colorado Springs - a warmer, slightly sunnier Saturday is in store.
"If you have plans for the weekend, your Saturday is looking like the best day to get outside," Gazette news partner KKTV reported. "We may see some lingering cloud cover into early morning, but our August sunshine will eventually burn through that and bring us plenty of dry time. Storms are spotty at best and mainly confined to the higher terrain. Temps rebound in a big way back to the 80s."
Saturday brings partly sunny skies and a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly from 3-5 p.m., and a 20 percent chance at night, according to the National Weather Service in Pueblo.
"Sunday and Monday both look wetter," KKTV reported. "Showers and storms will be more numerous during the afternoon and evenings. Locally heavy rain will be possible too."
Sunday has a 40 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly after noon and at night, with otherwise partly sunny skies. On Monday, expect partly sunny skies and a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms after noon that decreases to a 20 percent chance at night.
The weather service predicted highs of 79 degrees Saturday, 77 degrees Sunday and 81 degrees Monday.
"We'll start to dry out a bit into the middle/end of next work week," KKTV reported. "Highs also warm up each day."
