That persistent upper level low, scooting through Northern Colorado, will be moving into the Dakotas later tonight. In the meantime, the energy associated with it still brings the chance for an isolated rain shower or thunderstorm for this evening, primarily for the Palmer Ridge and northern counties. The chance for rain decreases the further south you are. Winds will begin to die down, skies will begin to clear, and we’ll look forward to one more night of cool temperatures with lows in the 30s for the Palmer Ridge, 40s for the Pikes Peak Region, and upper 40s for Pueblo. The San Luis Valley has a Freeze Warning in effect through Monday morning…(Is this late June!?)
Monday will bring a fresh change to the weather with mostly clear skies and afternoon highs in the mid to upper 70s for the Springs with lower 80s for Pueblo.

On Monday, drier and more stable air works into the state which will do two things: (1) bring us mostly clear skies and few chances of afternoon showers/storms, and (2), really allow us to heat up. As we work our way through the next week, temperatures will rapidly climb into the upper 80s for the Springs and lower 90s for Pueblo by Wednesday. This dome of hot air will stay with us clear through next weekend! There will be some isolated chances for afternoon thunderstorms sprinkled in during the week, primarily for the mountains. This is Colorado getting into its summertime routine of afternoon heating and thunderstorm convection. But, for everyone who has been asking, it looks like Summer is finally here!
