Some spotty showers will continue through this evening. They'll stick around through mid-evening with some heavy rain possible with each cell. Then the rest of the night we'll stay partly cloudy with temps down near 60 for most locations.
Wednesday looks like a decent day for most. Our rain chances are fairly low Wednesday afternoon as we don't have much of a trigger in place. Mountains will continue for the chance of some rain, but from 25 east, you won't see much. Temperatures will drop a degree or two, but stay mild through Wednesday. Highs Wednesday afternoon at 84 for Springs, 91 for Pueblo.
Thursday and Friday the monsoonal moisture increases over southeast Colorado. And as the jet stream moves over top of us, the trigger mechanism that won't be around Wednesday, will be right on top of us. This will mean more widespread showers and t-storms for most areas for the end of the week. It will also bring slightly cooler temperatures as strong winds in the upper atmosphere move into lower elevations.
The first half of the weekend looks better than the last. That's because Saturday some of the moisture will be pushed out due to a weak front. But by Sunday, it returns.
Happy Tuesday... Meteorologist Valerie Abati
