Today’s Forecast:
We're in a pretty boring pattern with more heat in today's forecast.

Sunny skies will quickly heat the air with highs in the upper 80s and 90s through the afternoon.

We will stay dry today with scattered storms over the western slope and Continental Divide.

Extended outlook forecast:
High pressure will continue to warm Colorado through the weekend with peak temperatures in the low 90s to low 100s across the I-25 corridor and eastern plains.

We could see a few scattered storms near our mountain towns on Sunday, but most of I-25 will stay dry.

Monsoon moisture returns early next week with widespread rain chances along and east of I-25 from Monday - Wednesday. Tuesday could see some strong to severe storms, but it's a little early to be confident on severe parameters.
