A roundup of weather in the Pikes Peak region and Colorado Springs area on Thursday:

Update 3:35 p.m.

Storms in northern and eastern parts of El Paso County brought gusts of up to 60 mph, said Pamela Evenson, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Pueblo.

For now, the storms have moved out of the area and to the east, she said.

"Right now we're looking OK, but there's still the potential for storms to develop later," Evenson said.

Colorado Springs has a 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms after 4 p.m. and a 30 percent chance by nighttime.
