Sunday afternoon showers, snow showers and even a couple thunderstorms developed across southern and southeastern Colorado. Many of the showers/thunderstorms have developed due to heating of the day. Once the sun sets this evening, the showers should dissipate.
Overnight expect to see skies turn partly cloudy. Winds will also remain brisk through the overnight hours and slightly increasing before sunrise. Lows will be in the 30°s. (Colorado Springs: 32° | Pueblo: 34°)
After morning sunshine we should see skies turn partly cloudy by late morning/early afternoon. There is a chance of a few isolated showers, mainly confined to the mountains and El Paso County. At this point, it looks like a relatively small chance.
Winds will remain brisk through the morning. They should begin to slightly ease by late afternoon. Highs will be in the 50°s. (Colorado Springs: 53° | Pueblo: 57°)
WORKWEEK WARM UP
Medium-range computer models continue to advertise a nice warm-up for the week ahead. Albeit it a touch windy, with sunny skies temperatures should climb in to the 70°s to around 80° by Wednesday.
Weather tidbit... If Pueblo is able to reach 80° Wednesday, this will be the first time the city has reached 80° in six months. The last time it got that warm was October 9, 2013.
Although a cold front will try to push south through Colorado Friday and Saturday, temperatures should remain much above normal.
WEEKEND STORM BREWING
Long-range computer models are projecting a Pacific storm approaching the west coast Thursday/Friday. (see image) As of today, projections bring the storm in to Colorado Saturday and Sunday. This has the potential to brink moisture and colder air to southern Colorado. It is still early, but temperatures look to be in the 30°s and 40°s Sunday afternoon with snow.
