Wednesday Evening Weather; Warm & mainly dry Thursday

Posted: Updated:

Today's Forecast:
A new "trough" of lower pressure has replaced the previous one, out West, and we again are on the eastern edge of it. This means, all we can get for now, are little "spokes" of energy ejecting out of that trough. The energy rotates through the trough, but then requires moisture to ignite into PM only thunderstorms...and this process is more likely the further east, as in, the Colorado/Kansas border. It is also more likely around and north of the Palmer Divide, because this secondary "plateau" creates more instability in the air that has already moved up and down the Rockies, and then has to do so again.

So, for those near Monument, possibility of a midday splash and dash Thursday, more so for the eastern Plains. Friday evening into the weekend, this trough will weaken but ever so slowly move across just to our north, elevating rain chances somewhat.
