Marty’s Saturday Morning Forecast – Happy Halloween! – 10/31/2020

Overview:  We're tracking a weak cold front that will kick up the wind and lead to a brisk evening for any Halloween Trick-or-Treaters. After a cool start to Sunday the air should warm into next week with periods of wind and little chance for precipitation.

Today:  Sunny and warming quickly this morning with high temperatures reaching the 60s for the plains in southern Colorado where snow is not on the ground. Mountain areas should reach the 50s and snow covered valleys may spend much of the day in the 40s. A weak cold front will increase the wind this afternoon with gusts over 25 mph likely developing late. The air will also start to cool from north to south during the mid to late afternoon hours.

Tonight:  The evening hours will be brisk as the colder air rolls southward over the plains and the sun sets. During the night the wind will gradually subside and by morning it is possible that some patchy low clouds may develop over the plains. Low temperatures will fall into the 20s to lower 30s for most areas by the high mountain valleys will cool into the teens.

Sunday:  Any patchy low clouds that developed overnight should break up during the morning hours leaving us mostly sunny the rest of the day, but the air will be slow to warm over the plains thanks to the shallow layer of colder air left behind by the cold front. The afternoon will be breezy and cooler for the plains with high temperatures generally in the 50s. The mountains and mountain valleys won't notice much cooling as compared to Saturday, and in fact, some of our local mountain communities might actually warm a few degrees with high temperatures generally around or into the 50s.

Extended:  The workweek looks warm and dry with periods of wind and limited cloud cover. High temperatures most days will warm into the 60s and 70s for the plains with 50s and 60s for the mountains and mountain valleys. Friday could be a little cooler and Saturday looks windy.
