Unusually Warm Weather...

October 28th, 2008:

Boy, what a nice stretch of weather we are having.  A cloudless sky, cool nights, and warm days.  If love the outdoors, this is like an extension of Summer.  Some folks are wondering if we have any record warmth in sight.  Let's check it out, I will put our forecast high in brackets:

                                         COS Record High / Forecast High                    Pueblo Record High / Forecast High

October 29th:                                        83 [ 74 ]                                                                       87 [ 78 ]

October 30th:                                        78 [ 75 ]                                                                       83 [ 81 ]

October 31st:                                        75 [ 74 ]                                                                       82 [ 77 ]

November 1st:                                      74 [ 77 ]                                                                       80 [ 81 ]

Looks like we will get really close in Colorado Springs on Halloween, and threaten or break the record high on Saturday for both Colorado Springs and Pueblo.  Rather we break records or not, it is certainly going to be a great ending to October and beginning to November. 

Unfortunately, this type of weather always troubles me this time of year.  Usually, when we see a big stretch of warm weather we will follow it up with stretch of equally cold weather.  Right now, there is no real sign of this occurring anytime soon.  However, there is some cold air pooling near the Arctic Circle that could be tapped by a big pattern switch.  Check out the temperatures in Canada below:

Again, nothing horrendous yet, but it is building...  Hate to be a buzz kill with the beautiful weather we are seeing, but at some point it all has to balance out.  We will continue to watch this trend closely.
