Moisutre... Moisture... Moisture...
That is the story for the next week. Moisture. Is it in place? What levels of the atmosphere is the moisture located? All questions I am looking for answers to this morning.
Moisture is in place in the low levels across southeast Colorado. Visibilities have dropped a little due to fog being in place. Keep that in mind if you are traveling early this morning.
Showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop over the mountains west of I-25 around noon. These will move off the mountains and move out over the Plains by late afternoon and evening. Some of the thunderstorms could produce heavy downpours and frequent lightning. We'll have to watch radar closely to see if any of the thunderstorms move over any of the burn scars.
I think enough drier air will be in place for much of the upcoming week to keep the chance for rain relatively low, and enough to keep it off my 7-Day Forecast for Colorado Springs and Pueblo. There is one exception, Thursday. There could be isolated showers and thunderstorms developing Thursday afternoon.
