Taste of Fall Coming to Colorado

After another warm afternoon with temperatures reaching the 90°s and lower 100°s we will see clear skies overnight with lows dropping to the 60°s.

Expect to see sunny skies across the plains of southeast Colorado, mostly sunny skies along the I-25 corridor and partly cloudy skies over the higher terrain west of I-25.  There is a small chance for an isolated shower/thunderstorm in Teller County and some of the mountains.  Highs will be in the 80°s to near 100° across southern and southeast Colorado.  Some of the warmer temperatures will occur along the U.S. 50 corridor.

Computer models continue to advertise a cold front moving through Colorado Tuesday.  Ahead of the front there could be a few scattered showers and thunderstorms.  Along, and especially behind the front, there will be a chance for showers and thunderstorms.  Also, cooler temperatures will move in to parts of Colorado.  I am currently forecasting high temperatures to be in the 60°s to 70°s Wednesday.

The fall weather-tease will be short lived.  By the end of next week temperatures will climb back to above normal level.  - Meteorologist John Dissauer
