11 Breaking Weather Team Forecast Discussion
Friday night, August 28th
After a very seasonal Friday, temperatures tonight will slip into the 50-60s with a clear sky to start the day on Saturday.
If you have anything to do outdoors tomorrow, earlier will be better. By the afternoon, temperatures will make it into the 80-90s and near 100s for the southeastern plains. Storms tomorrow look minimal... staying near the Continental Divide and western half of the state.
Sunday looks even warmer than Saturday, with the chance for showers and thunderstorms for the mountain locations. One or two isolated storms may move east off the mountains, so we will be keeping an eye on any storm possible along the I-25 corridor. Storms Sunday will be weak, just producing some brief heavy rain and gusty winds.
A better chance for widespread rain moves in Monday, with a chance for not just the mountains but out on the eastern plains as well. High temperatures will dip a bit... in the 70-90s.
The outlook for the upcoming week past Monday still looks a bit unsettled. Showers look to stay over the mountains Tuesday, widespread Wednesday, before drier air settles in by the end of the work week ahead. The biggest concern the next seven days will continue to be the heat, with highs staying above average through Friday.
