11 Breaking Weather Team Forecast Discussion
Chief Meteorologist Brian Bledsoe
Tuesday Night, April 22nd
Wednesday will be a bit cooler, but windier... This means fire danger will be VERY HIGH on this day. Highs mainly in the 60s and 70s east of the mountains, with a few lower 80s on the Southeast Plains.
Later Wednesday evening and night, there will be a few showers across eastern and southern Colorado. Nothing major, but showers nonetheless.
Thursday will be a little cooler, but still a bit windy. Fire danger will likely remain high, but not as bad as Wednesday.
Friday looks like the best day of the week. Not much wind, and temperatures climbing into the 70s.
A strong storm system will approach the state this weekend. However, our computer models are suggesting this storm will take more of a northerly track, placing Southern Colorado in the mild/windy/dry sector of the storm. So rather than getting some temporary relief from high fire danger this weekend, the threat will likely be enhanced. Hopefully, future computer models runs will revert to its original southern track (better for moisture). Stay tuned.
