Mountains forecast: Low: 40s; High: 70s/80s; Mid-70s to low 80s with spotty afternoon monsoon thunderstorms on Friday.

Extended outlook forecast:
A cold front moves through the region late on Friday. This will allow temperatures to cool over the weekend. It also will supply better moisture to the I-25 corridor and plains. So the monsoon showers that the mountains have been basking in this week, will finally move into the lower elevations and plains this weekend, becoming widespread and heaviest on Saturday night. Showers linger into Monday, then the forecast dries out a bit into next week.
