11 Breaking Weather Team Forecast Discussion
Meteorologist Branden Borremans
Monday, March 10th
If you liked Sunday, you'll LOVE today! Expect a mix of sun and clouds with unseasonably warm temps, well into the 60s and 70s!
Your Tuesday, however, will be MUCH different. A strong cold front will barrel through Southern Colorado during the late morning/early afternoon. Temps will max out in the 40s and 50s early in the day before tumbling into the 30s and 40s by afternoon. The wind, which could gust as high as 50mph immediately behind the front, will make it feel even colder! This front will also bring a quick shot of rain and snow during the afternoon and evening. The best chance for light snow accumulations will be in the higher terrain west of I-25, and perhaps over the Palmer Divide and Raton Mesa. Bottom-line, don't let Monday's nice weather lull you into a false sense of security. Tuesday will feel A LOT like winter!
Wednesday will be chilly (and a bit breezy) in the wake of this system, with daytime highs restricted to the 40s for most. The good news...ample sunshine!
Thursday and Friday look like generally nice days, with seasonably warm temps in the 50s and low 60s. However, a weakening disturbance will eject out of the Desert Southwest on Friday, possibly bringing some showers to southern sections. We'll have to wait and see.
It appears another disturbance might pay a visit to Southern Colorado over the weekend, meaning we can't rule out some rain/snow showers Saturday into early Sunday. However, a lot can change between now and then. We'll keep you posted!
