Highs will be near average today in the 50’s to low 60’s. We’ll see some sunshine this morning with more clouds building this afternoon and evening. A few showers and thunderstorms will pop up along and west of I-25 this afternoon, progressing towards the plains this evening. Skies generally clear overnight with areas of low clouds and fog developing along the Arkansas River Valley. Lows in the 20’s and 30’s.

REST OF THE WEEK:  The work week will bring an intense warming trend. Highs will be in the 60’s on Monday, warming to the 70’s and 80’s by Wednesday and Thursday. Those temperatures will likely be the warmest we’ve had since the end of October. Sunshine will be abundant with the warmth through the first half of the week. A few more clouds work in for the second half of the week. Temperatures drop for Friday and Saturday with highs mainly in the 40’s. This morning it’s looking like Friday will be our best chance to see some showers. Models are still different as to timing and intensity. They’ve been back and forth as to the solution for the end of the week. There’s still a chance these temperatures and the timing of showers will change as models hopefully become more aligned.
