Monday will be mild across Southern Colorado, but this mild spell will not last long. The sun will shine today, and most areas will warm into the low-to-mid 50's. A couple spots will climb toward 60.
A cold front moving onto the coast of the Pacific Northwest this morning will move toward us tomorrow. It will come with an increase in clouds and colder temperatures tomorrow and Saturday.
Expect a clear sky for the peak of the Geminid Meteor Shower tonight. Friday night will come with a few more clouds, but we still should be able to see some of the shower. For both nights, the meteors will appear to radiate from the eastern sky early in the evening. By 1-3 AM, the meteors will come from overhead. Toward sunrise, they will be coming from the westerky sky. The Geminid meteor shower often has bright streaking meteors, but it as a highly variable shower. More active years have produced 90 meteors per hour. Slower years have produced just 40 meteors per hour.
Bundle up if you will be watching the meteor shower or if you're headed to Denver for the Chargers game tonight.
