If you're counting down, there are three more days of heat before things start to change. So today, like the past several, you can expect mostly/partly sunny skies and very little rain - mostly isolated to Teller County and places north of the viewing area. Highs will climb to near 90 for Springs and upper 90s for Pueblo and Canon City.
Friday and Saturday are looking similar. Our high pressure system is going to start to break down, but only slowly. The heat will still be in place, as well as the sunshine. But each day, we will start to see a few more showers - not much, but a few more. So by Saturday afternoon, we'll have some scattered t-storms, especially north and west.
Sunday is when the real changes come for the area. If you want to make outdoor plans this weekend, Saturday is looking like the better day. A cool front will slam up against the Front Range. This will allow for good moisture, and a change in the winds. This means more showers and t-storms for the area. It also means cooler temperatures where highs will drop down to near or slightly below average.
The monsoonal moisture will be back for early next week. This will keep temperatures a bit cooler, clouds around, and even some widespread showers from Monday through Wednesday of next week.
One more day till the weekend... Meteorologist Valerie Abati
