While the possibility exists that some will miss out on rain again today, showers and thunderstorms will be more numerous than they were yesterday across Southern Colorado. Temperatures will top out in the 70's and 80's for most of us.
Showers and thunderstorms will be enhanced by a weak low pressure wave that moves through Colorado from the northwest this afternoon. This will likely be our last chance for any appreciable rain for at least the next week. That low pressure wave will organize into a low pressure circulation tomorrow in western Kansas, and warm high pressure to our west will creep a little closer to us. That high pressure will push wind out away from itself and toward that developing low pressure in the Plains, creating a downslope wind along the Southern Front Range that will add additional warmth to the already warming air beneath the approaching high pressure. This weekend will be noticeably warmer and breezy, especially on Saturday. High temperatures will be in the upper 80's and 90's on Saturday and Sunday. Temperatures will hit the top early next week near 100 in some areas before beginning to back off on Wednesday and Thursday.
