Overview: Several cold fronts and weak upper level waves will affect the area over the next week. We expect periods of wind and isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms at times over the next week. The warmest air of the week looks to settle over the area around mid-week.
Today: A Frost Advisory is in effect for northern parts of our coverage area this morning until 8:00 AM; in southern Colorado it includes El Paso, Crowley, Kiowa and Prowers Counties and then extends to the north. Any patchy low clouds over the far eastern plains this morning will give way to a mostly sunny sky for most areas this morning with partly cloudy conditions becoming more likely this afternoon. Breezy again with isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms developing over some areas during the afternoon and evening hours; the best coverage looks to exist over and near the mountains to the southwest of Pueblo. High temperatures will be similar to Saturday with a mixture of 60s to lower 70s for most areas in eastern Colorado with 50s over many of our local mountain communities.
Tonight: Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms will wind down this evening with areas of low cloud cover developing over the plains late. We expect low temperatures in the 30s and 40s for most areas.
Extended: Monday might be slightly cooler with another chance for isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms possible during the afternoon and evening hours. The air should warm a bit near the mountains on Tuesday after what might be a cloudy, cool start, but we may again have some spotty showers and thunderstorms over parts of the area during the afternoon and evening. Wednesday should probably be the warmest day of the week with high temperatures in the 70s and 80s and a dry, west/southwesterly wind that could cause conditions to become favorable for the spread of wildfires over some areas. Thursday and Friday look a little cooler again with more chances for isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms over some areas.
