Wednesday Afternoon, August 24th
A cold front has ushered in that touch of fall again for our Wednesday afternoon across Southern Colorado. Cloud cover will severely limit afternoon heating keeping temps into the 60s and 70s with an 80° reading or two on the Plains. Consequently, this stable air mass will prevent afternoon thunderstorms from developing in the Pikes Peak region. We will likely see isolated to scattered showers. Better chances will be through the Spanish Peaks Region and Plains. However, widespread rainfall will be possible again in the mountains this afternoon. We will be watching the Hayden Pass burn scar very carefully this afternoon.
Temperatures stay cool through the end of the work week... but morning and early afternoon sunshine will provide enough fuel for spotty afternoon storms.
By Sunday temperatures will start to warm back up to the 80s and low 90s and we will see drier weather for the start of next week.
