Drying Out, Warming Up

Our low pressure system continues to work east across the Divide today. This will drive most of the moisture east as well with ongoing rain likely over the northern and central mountains through the day. With some remnant moisture we will however have isolated storms and showers develop across the western slope this afternoon. But our best chance for rain today will be through the morning hours.

With more sunshine in the mix today you can expect temperatures to be about 7-10 degrees warmer than they were yesterday. This weekend a pacific system will race through the northern part of the state bringing some rain showers to the north and a few showers possible to town’s right along the I-70 corridor by Saturday afternoon. Temperatures over the next several days will start to work their way back up to seasonal normal. Winds will be breezy this weekend.

Next week high pressure will stretch across much of the lower 48 states bringing us back to a west-southwest flow which, in turn, will keep us dry and sunny. Highs will be in the middle to upper 80’s for next week.
