Friday will be the warmest day of the week as strong west-southwest winds pick up this afternoon. Daytime highs will be in the lower to upper 70's today with winds racing at 10-20mph. Partly cloudy skies can be expected all day but they will become mostly cloudy overnight as our next storm system approaches. Scattered showers are possible in southwestern Colorado tonight with the majority of the rain moving into the Western Slope tomorrow morning. Isolated thunderstorms are likely tomorrow.
Temperatures over the weekend will stay mild in the 60's and 70's with the warmest of the two coming on Easter Sunday. Easter will be dry but partly cloudy with mountain showers around. Monday and Tuesday may be the warmest two days of the year, yet. Highs should be pushing close to 80° in most locations prior to our next storm system which will arrive Wednesday bringing in cooler temperatures.
