Weather changes on the way... eventually

WEATHER DISCUSSION: High pressure centered over Utah has kept an overall northerly and dry wind flow over our area since we are east of its center. Friction caused by the mountains allows for some outward air motion from the high pressure's center rather than the classic clockwise wind flow around the high. That outward motion from the high at the ground is generating a bit of a warm, downslope wind along the Front Range that will rev the warmth up both today and Wednesday. The high pressure will lose its grip as a cold front moves quickly through the area early Thursday. A few additional clouds will be noticed with the passage of the cold front, but sun will still be the dominant weather feature for Thursday. Temperatures will drop off Thursday and Friday, but some warming will occur this weekend. The cold front will also be a pattern changer, and a more humid wind flow will set up over the Western U.S. that will set up a decent shot at snow along the Continental Divide and the San Juan Mountains. After a break Friday, a pattern favoring off-and-on snow in the High Country on Saturday and Sunday. Longer range forecasts suggest that snow may try to ease east and into the Eastern Mountains and closer to the Southern Front Range Sunday and Monday. It also could be that some spotty rain showers develop in the Southeastern Plains of Colorado. A developing storm system may mean snow Tuesday for areas from the San Juan Mountains to the south end of the I-25 corridor.
