Extended outlook forecast:
Two systems will work together to bring chances of showers and thunderstorms back to Southern Colorado on Tuesday. The first upper level low will draw in the moisture, racing across the state on Monday and in doing so, create breezy conditions. The second will provide the atmospheric energy needed to convert that moisture into clouds and thunderstorms on Tuesday. Once we get into Wednesday, we start to clear out and begin on a warming trend, marching us into Memorial Day Weekend.
