Detailed Forecast

Tonight: Expect gradually clearing skies through early tomorrow.  Lows tonight will drop into the 50s and 60s across the lower elevations, with 40s across our local mountains.  Winds will also begin decreasing overnight.

Tomorrow:  We'll have enough water across the state to help fuel a few more storms tomorrow afternoon, particularly across the mountains.  Storms that do develop will be capable of producing moderate to heavy rain, but storms will be moving quickly enough so that flooding will not be a big concern.  However, we will need to monitor the burn scars closely!  Expect highs in the 80s and low 90s for most along and east of I25, with 70s for our local mountains. 

Extended: A cold front is expected this weekend, and that will noticeably drop temperatures by Labor Day.  Highs on Monday will only be in the 70s and 80s, with these cooler temperatures expected to last well into the middle of next week.  While it will be cooler, storms should be rather isolated Sunday into Monday, with Saturday looking to be the wettest day of the holiday weekend.
