Overview: We're tracking a weak cold front that will move over the area this evening, but overall the air looks to remain warm by November standards for several days. Mountain wave clouds may block out the sun occasionally for a few days and we are tracking some waves that will bring changes to our weather through the middle of the week.
Today: We expect a mixture of clouds and sun with temperatures warming into the 60s to lower 70s for the plains with mainly 50s over the mountains.
Tonight: Becoming breezy this evening as some colder air moves over the area. Expect the air to cool sharply as the sun sets with a chance for a quick burst of rain and/or snow showers this evening. We do not expect long lasting precipitation anywhere tonight, but for a short time precipitation could make for wet or briefly whitened roadways, particularly around the Pikes Peak Region.
Sunday: Partly cloudy and cooler with high temperatures in the 50s for most areas, although a few spots over the plains might reach to near 60.
Extended: Warmer air looks to work over the area early next week with high temperatures warming into the 60s and 70s by Tuesday. We're tracking a couple of waves that will work together to bring some significant changes to the area Wednesday and Thursday. All areas will be mostly cloudy and colder starting Wednesday, and we expect chances for areas of rain and snow Wednesday afternoon into Wednesday night. Thursday will be cold enough for snow, and if the wave tracks favorably for the area some areas could receive accumulating snow, but right now it appears much of southern Colorado will miss the heaviest precipitation with these waves. We should begin to warm up again Friday & Saturday.
