The air is very dry over Colorado. Humidity near the ground is higher and makes the heat feel a little more oppressive. High pressure is still parked over us and will keep us overall dry and unseasonably warm.
We are in for an overall dry day with only 1 in 10 odds of seeing a shower pop up in the heat of the afternoon. Temperatures will warm by 10 AM into the low-to-mid 80's, much like yesterday. The warming is only slightly slower than yesterday. Noon temperatures will be in the mid-to-upper 80's with some lower 90's on the Lower Arkansas Valley. At 2 PM, temperatures will be in the 80's and 90's and they will warm slightly into 5 PM.
Highs today will be in the 80's and 90's. Temperatures plateau through Friday before cooling slightly on Saturday then cooling more noticeably on Sunday. The high pressure starts to make room for more moisture by Friday. That's when the more abundant afternoon thunderstorms will begin. That more stormy pattern will continue through the weekend, picking up Sunday and persisting into Monday and Tuesday.
