Overview: The air is going to be warm for the next several days, and we’re likely to notice the clouds and wind on the increase as we head into the workweek. Isolated showers will return to mainly mountain areas soon although we don’t expect widespread, heavy rainfall anywhere for the next several days with the lower levels of the atmosphere remaining quite dry. The dry air will allow for crisp nights and early mornings.
Today: Sunny for just about everyone and warmer with high temperatures in the 80s to lower 90s for the plains, mainly 70s for our local mountain areas. Low level moisture may catch the extreme southeastern corner of the state where an isolated thunderstorm could develop late in the day.
Tonight: Clear and cool with low temperatures in the 50s for the plains, 40s for the mountains and high valleys.
Sunday: Increasing clouds and becoming breezy during the afternoon with spotty showers possibly developing over the mountains, mainly to the southwest of Pueblo. We don’t expect heavy rain anywhere locally today but any showers could kick up the wind for a bit. We’ll remain warm with high temperatures back into the 80s and 90s for the plains with mainly 70s for the mountains.
Extended: More clouds and wind but still warm on Monday with scattered showers possible over mainly mountain areas again. Tuesday should be partly cloudy and breezy with a few sprinkles or brief showers/thunder possible during the afternoon. A weak cold front should drop temperatures into the 70s and 80s for the plains with 60s and 70s for the mountains. We expect a gradual warm up through the end of the week with little chance for rain save a few sprinkles or a brief shower over the mountains again by Friday.
