- Latest Update: Timing of Sunday evening storms trending later and now most likely to arrive Sunday night. The rain will slowly taper as we start the day on Sunday as it pushes into East Alabama and finally on into Georgia by Sunday afternoon.

We're starting off with chilly temperatures in the low to mid 30's.

After two days of well-above-average temperatures, snow is falling in parts of the Pikes Peak region.

Any storms that develop will have the potential to be severe with large hail and damaging winds being the most likely threats; however, a few isolated tornados will also be possible, according to the weather service. It will be nice weather for the festivals, but you will want to wear dark colors and a jacket to keep warm! However, another cold front move through Tuesday night, cooling us back to near 60 by Wednesday. Our high temperatures on Monday will be in the lower to mid 50s. Don't put that winter coat away just yet!

Today: A 10 percent chance of showers after 5pm. Wind Advisories continue until 1 PM for gusts 40-45 miles per hour.

The bad news is the low pressure system that brought Thursdays rain and is now centered over Wisconsin will be moving on and bringing more rain.

High Fire danger will increase behind the dry line along with strong W/SW winds of 20-30 miles per hour.

Rain, storm and severe storm chances Sunday.

The main threat to our area still looks to be damaging winds up to 65 miles per hour but there is a chance we could see a few isolated tornadoes, especially west of the Mississippi River. Skies will continue to clear to partly cloudy and mostly sunny.

Plenty of sunshine, breezy and staying cool. Highs this afternoon will climb into the low 80s under a sun-filled sky. High of 78 and low of 51.

The time frame on the arrival of the line of storms is gradually becoming more clear.
