Latest Update: August 11th, 2022- 8:25 PM
TONIGHT: We may see a few clouds around early on through the evening, but skies will clear quickly after dinner and remain that way overnight with lows bottoming out in the 40s, 50s and 60s. It’ll be cool enough in most places that you can give the AC a break and crack open the windows for some cool air. In most locations, skies should clear enough so you can take a gander at the Perseid meteor shower that peaks tonight into Friday morning. However, we’ll have a full moon that may diminish some of the more faint meteors. In a typical Perseid meteor shower, you can usually see anywhere from 50-75 meteors per hour, but that full moon may slightly lower those numbers.
FRIDAY: It will again be quite warm across southern Colorado with partly to mostly sunny skies. There is a slight chance for a storm or two west of the divide, but I think most of the region will stay dry so don’t cancel the outdoor plans, just keep an eye to the sky and on the Fox 21 Weather app if things start to look unsettled. High temperatures will warm into the 80s and 90s in many areas with a few spots across the southeast getting close to 100°. Cooler temperatures will be found in the higher elevations.
EXTENDED: Saturday, we’ll stay mainly dry with only an isolated chance for a storm during the afternoon and evening, primarily along and west of the divide. Temperatures will be warm again with many areas in the 90s.
Sunday looks to be the hottest day of the week with only a slight chance for an afternoon or evening storm. Better chances for storms roll into southern Colorado beginning Monday and stretching into at least the middle of next week. Temperatures will turn cooler as well with highs only in the 70s in many areas by Wednesday.
