Fall officially starts at 2:44pm (MDT) today!
A system will move across Colorado late today which will lead to increasing clouds throughout the day. It'll also be warm and breezy out today with highs in the 70s/80s and winds out of the south gusting up to 30-40 mph at times. Thunderstorms are likely over the high country this afternoon. Those storms will push east and are expected to weaken as they eventually spill out over the I-25 corridor and neighboring plains late this afternoon and evening. Most of the activity will push out of the region overnight though a few lingering rain showers are possible Monday morning for the Palmer Divide and Rampart Range.
Several inches of snow is possible later tonight over the central mountains as the snow level drops to around 9,000 feet. Pikes Peak will see its snow level drop to around 11,000 feet overnight resulting in some new snow for America's mountain overnight.
Pockets of heavy rain are possible today, so if you live, work, or plan on being around one of the area burn scars, please stay on high alert for some possible flash flooding.
Much of the workweek ahead looks nice weatherwise. Expect sunny to mostly sunny skies Monday through Thursday with highs in the 70s/80s. Another system will bring a slight chance of rain for some parts of Southern Colorado Friday.
