DENVER (CBS4) – It’s more of the same for Colorado and the Central Rockies over the next several days – hot weather with scattered daily thunderstorms.
While most will stay dry, those that do see a storm could pick up some locally heavy rain.
Most of the storms should stay below severe criteria but it’s certainly possible to see a few here and there, especially on the eastern plains where there’s a little more moisture to work with.
Because it’s sunny and hot with light winds we will see air quality be a concern along the urban corridor between Colorado Springs, Denver, Boulder, Fort Collins and Greeley.
An ozone alert is in effect.
You can help reduce the production of ground-level ozone by limiting your driving during the heat of the day and by stopping at the click when refueling.
Limiting the use of gas-powered lawn equipment during the heat of the day and doing your painting or staining projects in the early morning or early evening hours will help too.
