Warm and dry with isolated evening storms

Hot, dry weather to start the week with afternoon temperatures in the mid 80s. Isolated storms this evening and the next few days with high fire danger Thursday

COLORADO, USA — FORECAST BY: Meteorologist Kathy Sabine


Sunshine and hot highs in the mid to upper 80s to start the new week.  A little moistures traveling under the high pressure ridge has helped produce a few high based storms this afternoon. A little rain, but also wind and lightning with these storms as they track east.  

Tuesday and Wednesday we will see partly cloudy skies and warm temperatures again with the chance of a late day thunderstorm. These storms will have wind and lightning but also the chance for a brief shower. 

A Red Flag Warning is in effect for portions of south-central Colorado from Noon to 8 p.m. today. An Air Quality Alert in generally the same area due to fire smoke is in effect until 9 a.m. this morning.

Thursday will be the warmest day of the week with the highest fire danger ahead of a Friday cool front and chance for rain! Friday will be much cooler with highs in the upper 40s and lower 50s and lows in the lower to middle 30s.
