After a mild Saturday, temperatures to finish the weekend will be MUCH colder! A system to our west pushes into SE Colorado overnight. Snow showers will be possible by early Sunday morning across the I-25 corridor with a change to rain and snow showers through the afternoon. Accumulation should be minimal as most moisture looks to be light and temperatures will warm into the upper 30s and 40s through the afternoon. The main impact will be the cold along with winds gusting up to 40 mph at times. Click on the 'Weather' tab for more...
The Perseid meteor showers are set to peak Friday night and Saturday Morning. Unfortunately, with a full moon, it will be difficult to see all but the brightest meteors.
Normally, the annual meteor shower generates 60 or more meteors per hour. This year, 20-30 per hour is the predicted peak.
If you’re having trouble seeing the meteors outside, there are a number of websites offering a view through your computer screen.
The meteor shower is caused each August when the Earth passes through a cloud of dust from the comet Swift-Tuttle. The ice and dust in the cloud burns up in the atmosphere, causing the spectacular show.
