11 Breaking Weather Team Forecast Discussion
Meteorologist Christine Rapp
Wednesday, April 23rd
Your Wednesday will be a bit cooler, but windier... This means fire danger will be VERY HIGH today. Highs mainly in the 70-80s this afternoon.
A cold front will bring a few showers to eastern and southern Colorado later this evening. Nothing major, but the slight chance for showers nonetheless.
Thursday will be a little cooler, but still a bit windy. Fire danger will likely remain high, but not as bad as today.
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. We know it will be windy and mild on Saturday, windy and cooler Sunday. However, the degree of cooling and prospects for moisture on Sunday remain highly uncertain. It all hinges on the storm's track, which our computer models have had difficulty nailing down. A southern track would result in colder temps and a better chance for rain/snow, while a northern track would leave us warmer and drier. We'll have more confidence in Sunday's forecast in the next day or two, as our computer models likely merge toward a consensus.
