Extended outlook forecast:
Tuesday will be one of the drier days across the region this week. Like on Monday, showers on Tuesday will favor the mountains. A few isolated storms may make it to the I-25 corridor right off the foothills. Temperatures will rise through the middle of the week, reaching the 70s and 80s in the plains and the 60s to 70s in the mountains. Then thunderstorm activity expands and increases in intensity through the middle of the week. Thursday looks like a day with the right ingredients for stronger thunderstorms and heavy rain.
