Detailed Forecast

This Afternoon:  Mostly sunny skies are expected this afternoon.  Temperatures will be above the average again with a breeze - especially over the eastern plains.  Some snow can be expected in the high country above 12,000 feet. 

Tonight:  Mostly cloudy skies will blanket southern Colorado, making the second viewing of the Orinoid Meteor Shower a bit less visible. If you head out, make sure to bundle up! Lows will drop into the 30s and 40s. The meteor shower will peak between midnight and dawn.

Extended:  A few showers will be in the forecast for much of the day on Wednesday. Temperatures behind the front that will produce the showers will dip into the 60s, but it's only a temporary cool down.  A warming and drying pattern sets up that will last into the weekend...but 50s are not too far away!  Looks like we'll get a glimpse at what fall should REALLY feel like by next Monday!
