Hot with spotty daytime and evening thunderstorms

We're in for a hot day and a chance of spotty storms in the afternoon and early evening. Storms will show up in the afternoon with a second round in the evening. Spotty coverage is expected today and tonight in a diagonal across the plains from southwest to northeast. We won't see any severe weather today, but really gusty winds are expected with lightning. If you had plans at the state fair in Pueblo today, the chances you'll stay dry are pretty high, but there could be really gusty winds in the afternoon and evening. Rain chances across the Pikes Peak Region are a little better in the evening compared to the afternoon.
