Overview: Isolated showers are possible this weekend although we don’t expect widespread, significant precipitation anywhere in eastern Colorado. We’re tracking the warmest air of the season as we head through next week with periods of cloud cover and wind, but little precipitation expected.
Today: A weak wave passing primarily to our northeast will make for a cool morning with isolated showers possible over mainly northern parts of our coverage area through about lunchtime. Most areas will be partly cloudy and breezy at times this afternoon with high temperatures warming into the 50s and 60s for most areas. The far eastern plains could have isolated showers and/or thunderstorms this afternoon.
Tonight: Partly cloudy with low temperatures in the 30s to lower 40s.
Sunday: Partly to mostly cloudy with isolated showers and/or thunderstorms possible over and near the mountains late in the afternoon. Although there may be a few breezy pockets at times, the wind shouldn’t be too strong for most areas. Afternoon temperatures should be warmer than Saturday under filtered sunshine with high temperatures in the 60s and 70s for most areas.
Extended: Monday should be mostly sunny and warmer again with high temperatures in the 70s and 80s for the plains with 60s to lower 70s for our local mountain communities. Tuesday might be breezy at times and a little cooler under a partly cloudy sky, but the air should still warm into the 60s and 70s for most areas. We expect a pronounced warming trend through the end of the week with high temperatures reaching the 80s to lower 90s across the plains by Thursday and Friday. Chances for precipitation look very low for the latter half of the week, and although it’ll likely be breezy at times for many areas, we’re hopeful the wind will not get strong enough for widespread fire weather concerns.
