Today’s Forecast:

Sunday will be dramatically different from Saturday!  A cold front is moving through the area this evening, bring a slight chance of isolated showers to the Palmer Ridge.  Otherwise, partly cloudy to start the evening with increasing clouds later on.  Winds will be gusty during the overnight as well.  Lows in the lower 50s.  Believe it or not, some places will see warmer overnight lows than afternoon highs for Sunday!

With a strong North/Northeast wind on Sunday, Southern Colorado will be under mostly cloudy to completely overcast skies.  Scattered light rain showers are possible along the Wet Mountains and Raton Mesa early Sunday morning as winds create an upslope effect.  As the winds turn from the East, the I-25 corridor will see an enhanced upslope effect, keeping things mostly cloudy for Sunday afternoon.  Afternoon highs will struggle in the lower 60s for many, upper 50s for the Pikes Peak Region and near 50 for the Tri-Lakes.

We start to clear things out on Monday as sunshine returns, but it will take a few days to return to 80-degree afternoon high temperatures.  A series of small disturbances move through the atmosphere and bring slight chances for afternoon showers and storms each day, but overall, the atmosphere becomes mroe stable for the first half of the week as the Jet Stream develops a ridge over top of us.  Hot temperatures return for the end of the work week with highs in the upper 80s and lower 90s.
