Quiet Weather Before Series of FROPAs

Will see a couple of quiet weather days leading up to the weekend.

After a near 100% sunny day Wednesday, we will see clear skies overnight.  Lows will drop to the upper teens to 20°s Thursday morning.  (Colorado Springs: 21° | Pueblo: 18°)

Thursday morning starts out sunny but by late afternoon, clouds will begin to build along the I-25 corridor turning skies partly to mostly cloudy in Colorado Springs are mostly sunny to partly cloudy in Pueblo.

Temperatures Thursday will be several degrees warmer than Wednesday.  Highs temperatures will top out in the 60°s.  (Colorado Springs: 61° | Pueblo: 68°)

SERIES OF COLD FRONTS

A cold front, the first in a series, will slide through southern Colorado early Friday morning.  This will drop temperatures 6° to 8° as compared to Friday.  Under mostly sunny skies, temperatures will be in the 50°s.

A second cold front will pass through southern Colorado Saturday.  At this point, the timing of the cold front passage (FROPA) appears to be late morning/early afternoon.  Before the front passes, temperatures should be able to get in to the 50°s to around 60°.  As the front passes, winds will increase and temperatures will start to fall.  Medium-range computer models continue to trend up with the chance for precipitation Saturday.  The chance is still relatively low (15%-20%) but umbrellas may be needed for outside activities Saturday afternoon.

Computer models are mixed in the solution of when a third cold front will pass through the region.  One keeps things sunny and mild Tuesday/Wednesday.  Another, which I am leaning more towards, suggests temperatures will warm to the 60°s and 70°s Tuesday before a cold front passes.  Temperatures behind the front Wednesday would only be in the 40°s if this turns out to be correct.  Stay tuned... - Meteorologist John Dissauer
