Warmth Returns to Colorado

As first advertised last Monday, today (Saturday) is the coolest day of the week.  Highs topped out in the 60°s and 70°s across southern Colorado.  Officially, Colorado Springs hit 67° and Pueblo hit 73°.

The cool down will be short lived as temperatures begin to rebound tomorrow as winds turn out of the west and skies turn 100% sunny.  Highs will be in the 70°s and 80°s across the KOAA viewing area.

Mainly sunny skies will prevail for much of the upcoming week.  Forecasters' eyes are looking at a storm that will bring a cold front through Colorado Thursday or Friday.  This front should be a little more potent than yesterday's front.

Right now computer models are a little divided as to when the front passes.  Currently, I'm siding with the front moving through southern and southeastern Colorado Thursday afternoon/evening.  I expect to see falling temperatures Thursday.  Behind the front, there is a chance we could see a little snow, especially in higher elevations.  I think it is entirely possible Colorado Springs could see a little snow early Friday morning.  Stay tuned... - Meteorologist John Dissauer
