Detailed Forecast

Tonight:  We will continue tracking a few scattered showers and thunderstorms out across the far eastern plains through midnight, before cloudy skies gradually begin to clear out.  Lows will be dropping into the 40s and 50s overnight.  Winds will be out of the north between 5 and 10 mph.

Tomorrow:  Winds will shift out of the north and northeast, which will do two things: bring in slightly cooler air and help to focus any storm development over the southeastern mountains.  High temperatures will be in the 70s and 80s for most, so it will not be cold by any means.  Storms that develop over the southern mountains will be capable of producing gusty winds. 

Extended:  Cooler air will slide into Colorado this weekend, dropping temperatures into the 60s and 70s for the lower elevations.  We are also expecting increasing rain chances through the weekend and into early next week.  We're tracking another surge of colder air that will move into the state by the middle of next week, and this blast could mean a few snowflakes across the high country during this time frame.
