Big Changes Coming For The Second Half Of The Weekend

THERE'S TWO MORE DAYS WHERE WE ARE STUCK WITH THE HEAT AND SUNSHINE.  BUT CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR IF YOU WANT IT TO COOL DOWN.  BY SUNDAY AND THROUGH MUCH OF NEXT WEEK, THE SHOWERS WILL BE WIDESPREAD AND THE TEMPERATURES MUCH COOLER.

TODAY IS GOING TO BE A SIMILAR DAY TO YESTERDAY. THIS MEANS A REALLY NICE START... WITH MORE CLOUD COVER INTO THE AFTERNOON. WE ALSO HAVE THE POSSIBILITY OF SEEING SOME SPOTTY SHOWERS THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING, ESPECIALLY FARTHER WEST AND NORTH IN THE VIEWING AREA.  AS FOR TEMPS, IT'S HOT, ALREADY! HIGHS TODAY WILL CLIMB SEVERAL MORE DEGREES. THIS WILL PUT US IN THE MID 90S FOR SPRINGS AND NEAR 100 FOR PUEBLO.  

THERE'S A FRONT JUST TO OUR NORTH... IT WILL TRY TO GET CLOSER, BUT WE HAVE TO WAIT TILL AN AREA OF HIGH PRESSURE BREAKS DOWN BEFORE WE SEE ANY REAL EFFECTS FROM THIS NORTHERN SYSTEM. SO TODAY AND TOMORROW ARE THE TRANSITION DAYS, WHERE THE FRONT STAYS TO OUR NORTH AND TEMPS STAY HOT. BY SUNDAY THOUGH, HIGH PRESSURE WEAKENS ENOUGH THAT THE FRONT MOVES THROUGH OUR AREA. THIS WILL SANDWICH SOME OF THE COOLER AIR UP AGAINST THE FRONT RANGE.  WITH THIS, WE'LL STILL HAVE PLENTY OF MOISTURE IN THE ATMOSPHERE. SO FROM SUNDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY OF NEXT WEEK, MONSOONAL MOISTURE WILL MEAN MORE WIDESPREAD SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS EACH DAY.  WE'LL HAVE TO BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR FLOODING STARTING SUNDAY.

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND... METEOROLOGIST VALERIE ABATI
