Last Update: September 26th, 4:30 PM
MONDAY: More warmth and dry conditions to start the week. We’ll have a good deal of sunshine Monday but there will be an increase in clouds compared to our weekend weather. After a mild start to the day, temps warm up fast under dry air. By lunchtime, we’ll reach for 80s to low 90s across the Front Range and E Plains. It will be feeling warm with breezes through the day. A couple of storms will sit across the SW mountains but most of the state will have a dry day. This will also be the last warm day of week!
EXTENDED: Changes start moving in already on Tuesday. A nearby trough of low pressure will send a piece of energy across the Northern Rockies and build in a more active pattern through the week. Moisture will increase early week across the western slope and areas along/west of the Continental Divide. Mountain and higher terrain areas see developing areas of heavy rain through the day Tuesday.
By mid-week, better rain and storms chances will expand east to Front Range areas. There’s still some question in the track and strength of the system. This will impact how much moisture we have for storms in southern Colorado. Plan on Wednesday and Thursday being the more active days, bringing best rain/storm chances for the region. Cooler temps move in with this system, as highs fall to 60s and 70s!
We’ll continue to fine tune details as we watch the storm’s track evolve. Right now, it looks like Thursday and Friday will see lower rain chances as the system starts to clear Colorado. There is a question of how fast it will move out, and we could be keeping a more active pattern on hand through Friday. Stay tuned!
