Monsoon Moisture Returns

What a change from yesterday morning! It is much warmer out there today thanks to strong winds overnight and a few extra clouds. Most of the cloud cover this morning is to the south over the San Juans but it will continue to move north. Moisture surge from the south is underway. Nocturnal showers and isolated storms appear to have ended over parts of southwest Colorado early this morning. Moisture will continue to stream north today and encompass much of the forecast area. With the high core located over Colorado strong surface heating will not be a problem and will be the primary trigger mechanism for producing showers and thunderstorms. Afternoon highs today will be soaring back into the 90's for lower valleys with areas in the Four Corners feeling slightly cooler temperatures due to the extra helping of clouds early in the day.

Cloudy weather stays with us through the next week. A rich moisture layer will rest in the Four Corners area through next Tuesday. So we can expect to be dealing with afternoon showers that way through that time. For areas along and north of i-70 shower chances will diminish over the weekend as drier air is pushed in. Temperatures will run at or above average through next week.
