Today: A weak upper level system could cause some clouds to develop over the mountains today, and there could even be a few flakes, mainly near the Sangre De Cristo mountains, but possibly over the mountains in the Pikes Peak Region as well. For most areas we expect another blustery day. The wind may not be quite as strong as it was yesterday, but we still expect gusts around 25 mph at times. The high temperatures will reach the 30s and 40s for the plains again, with 20s to lower 30s over our local mountain areas. Scattered snow showers will wind down over the high country where some passes will remain slick.
Tonight: Mostly clear and chilly with low temperatures in the teens for most areas, but some low lying areas and mountain valleys may fall into the single digits again. Strong wind gusts may develop over and near the mountains late, and for some wind prone areas the gusts could exceed 40 mph by morning.
Extended: We should warm some on Monday, but we’ll continue to experience periods of wind with occasionally strong gusts over and near the mountains, and conditions may become favorable for the spread of wildfires for parts o eastern Colorado. The next cold front could slide over parts of eastern Colorado on Tuesday, and if not it will certainly settle over the area on Wednesday. Right now it doesn’t appear that the colder air will bring much snow to the area, but we cannot entirely rule out at least spotty snow showers. Still chilly on Thursday, particularly in the morning as it appears some areas might have some low clouds. The air should become warmer for everyone Friday, but it may still be breezy to windy at times. Colder air may start to affect the area again next weekend.
