As expected, temperatures this afternoon have climbed in to the 80°s and 90°s across southern and southeastern Colorado. Temperatures will continue to climb over the next couple of days as a warm pattern is setting up for the west-central United States.
It appears that Tuesday will be the warmest day of the coming week. Interesting to note the record high temperatures for Tuesday:
As of now, I am currently forecasting temperatures to exceed the records. I'm going with a high of 94° in Coloroado Springs and 102° in Pueblo. Generally, it is usually not a good idea to forecast above record temperatures, but computer models are going 5°-8° warmer than my forecast.
As for the next chance of rain... There could be a few isolated showers Monday in the higher elevations west of I-25 but for the vast majority of the area it will remain dry for at least the next six days and possible longer.
Fire danger will increase, especially Tuesday and Wednesday, across the area. At this time it is not advised to be doing any burning this coming week. - Meteorologist John Dissauer
