Marty’s Sunday Morning Forecast – Happy Mother’s Day! – 5/8/2022

Overview:  We're tracking very warm air, wind, and fire weather.

Today:  A weak cold front keep the air a little cooler over eastern Colorado, particularly during the morning hours, but by afternoon most areas will get windy again and the air temperature will warm back into the 70s and 80s, with a few lower 90s possible along and south of the Arkansas River late. The sky will remain mostly sunny to partly cloudy, and fire weather conditions will return to most areas starting late this morning and early this afternoon. Damaging wind gusts over 60 mph are possible over and near the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and the San Luis Valley this afternoon and evening.

Tonight:  Mostly clear and windy at times with low temperatures in the 50s for the plains, 40s for the mountains, and 30s to lower 40s for the high mountain valleys. Fire weather conditions may persist through midnight over much of the area, and damaging wind gusts over 60 mph are possible over the higher terrain around the Pikes Peak Region and Fremont County at times.

Extended:  Next week looks mostly sunny to partly cloudy, breezy to windy at times, and very warm. We expect fire weather conditions to be prevalent most days. High temperatures on the higher terrain along and west of I-25 will likely reach the 70s and 80s most days, while a mixture of 80s and at times lower 90s are expected over the plains. There are some indications that cooler air will arrive late next week and next weekend, and if so we may have a chance for some precipitation.
