Detailed Forecast

Today:  A weak cold front will get together with Pacific moisture too produce showers and thunderstorms across our region, especially in the high country.  Some showers will be heavy at times and will require close monitoring in case they threaten one of the burn areas.  Highs on Sunday will be cooler, only reaching the upper 60s and lower 70s in the plains with mountain locations struggling to reach the 60s.  

Tonight:  Once again, there will be chances for showers and storms during the night with plenty of clouds around and the upper level disturbance off to our west slowly moving towards the area.  Lows will drop into the 40s and 50s for most.

Extended:  Our weather pattern will stay unsettled this following week with increasing rain chances on Monday as the upper low brings in the moisture from the Gulf of California and Pacific Ocean.  The lift from the mountains will enhance the number and intensity of the showers and storms there but everyone will see a chance for rain.  Drier weather will resume by the middle of next week, with highs reaching the 70s and 80s again after our brief cool down today.
