Detailed Forecast

Tonight: Temperatures will drop into the 50s and 60s tonight.  We'll be tracking storms mainly along the Colorado/New Mexico state line through the first half of the night... these storms should move east and dissipate by early Wednesday morning.  Winds will be gusty through the first half of the night, but wind speeds will decrease by midnight.  Winds will shift around to be out of the east through early Wednesday morning, this will help to increase moisture in Colorado and these easterly winds will also bring in some cooler air.  This combination could spark a few spotty showers to southern Colorado early Wednesday.

Wednesday:  Cooler air will move in by early Wednesday, keeping high temperatures in the 70s and 80s through the day.  It will be another breezy day, with winds ranging from 10 to 20mph.  Moisture will be on the increase beginning early Wednesday morning, this could help to spark a few spotty showers by the Wednesday morning drive.  A better chance for rain is expected late Wednesday afternoon and into the evening, with the potential for bursts of heavy rain.  These storms will continue to move eastward and dissipate through the first half of Wednesday night.

Extended: It will begin to gradually warm back up later this week, with a chance for isolated to scattered afternoon thunderstorms through Saturday.  It appears the best coverage of storms will be south of Hwy 50.  High temperatures will warm back into the 80s and 90s this weekend.
