Overview: The air will continue to warm through Labor Day with only isolated showers and thunderstorms expected over primarily mountain areas. Cooler air will work over the area next week bringing better chances for showers and thunderstorms to most areas.
Today: Any patchy low clouds over the plains will break up quickly this morning and most areas will be partly cloudy this afternoon. The air will become a little drier this afternoon but a quick shower or a crack of thunder will remain possible over and near the mountains; in general we don’t expect much rain west of I-25 but should a storm develop farther east localized downpours will be possible. We’ll be breezy and a little warmer again with high temperatures climbing well into the 90s over the plains with 70s and 80s for the mountains and mountain valleys.
Tonight: If there are isolated showers or thunderstorms anywhere this evening they should wind down quickly leaving most areas partly cloudy through the night. Patchy low clouds may again develop over the far eastern plains of eastern Colorado late, but other areas should remain mostly clear. By morning, we expect the air will have cooled into the 50s to lower 60s for the plains with 40s to lower 50s for the mountains.
Extended: Labor Day should be breezy, hot and dry for most areas although we might still expect a very brief shower or a quick crack of thunder somewhere over the mountains and perhaps over the far eastern plains. Cooler air will move over the area on Tuesday and Wednesday increasing the moisture and helping to support an increase in showers and thunderstorms over many areas. Thursday looks hot and drier although spotty showers and weak thunderstorms may still develop over a few areas. Another cold front may affect the area Friday into Saturday with another increase in our chances for showers and thunderstorms.
