The summer-like weather pattern will remain across the region today. Expect above average temperatures and mostly sunny skies through the morning. Clouds will be on the increase through the afternoon with isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms developing across the higher terrain and moving out across the adjacent plains through the evening.
Tuesday, expect isolated afternoon and evening thunderstorms again, but chances for some severe storms are greater. Max temps on Tuesday will be in the 60s to lower 70s and lows right around 40.
For Wednesday, a low pressure system will be moving through. Behind the system, will be a cooler air mass, so the high temperatures will be in the 50's and 60's. There will still be a slight chance for showers and thunderstorms.
Thursday, there should be a lull in precipitation for the plains, with the western mountains probably seeing an increase.
Friday, the low moves into Kansas and Nebraska, but there will still be the potential for wrap-around moisture and winds for the southern Colorado area. The main focus for precip will be in the mountains and over the Palmer Divide.
