Strong low-level jet stream winds will be the cause for a blustery weekend.
Winds 1,000 to 2,000 feet above the ground will be moving quickly over the moutains tonight. Some of these winds could mix down to the surface, causings winds to gust 40-60 miles per hour at times through the overnight and especially Saturday morning. The winds will allow temperatures to stay relatively mild overnight. Lows should drop to the 30°s east of the mountains.
Pacific Ocean moisture will continue to stream over Colorado Saturday. The moisture will be visible in the form of mid to high level clouds. Much like we've seen all week, the mid to high level cloud deck could obscure the clouds at times Saturday.
Westerly winds will aid temperatures to reach far above normal. Highs are expected to reach the mid-60°s to lower 70°s Saturday afternoon. (Colorado Springs: 64° | Pueblo: 68°)
There should be more sunshine Sunday. Winds will remain gusty out of the west and temperatures should get a few degrees warmer than Saturday. Highs should top out in the upper 60°s to lower/middle 70°s. (Colorado Springs: 67° | Pueblo: 74°)
LOOKING FOR MOISTURE
Medium-range computer models are dry for the next five days. One model hints at the possibility of snow late Wednesday night through early Thursday morning. Not something to make a big deal of yet, but something to keep an eye on. At this point, this would not be a significant snow, if it pans out. - Meteorologist John Dissauer
