At Stevens Field the high today was 73 and the low this morning was 50. The peak wind at the airfield yesterday was 27mph and the peak wind today was 23mph.
Precip yesterday in our area was a bit disappointing. The best storm energy and moisture stayed to our north. The central and northern Colorado mountains got snow!
The tail-end of the weakening trough moved through our area this morning. Drier and more stable air has moved in behind it. Most of this week, moisture and instability will be barely enough to trigger a spotty afternoon shower or thunderstorm, mostly over the mountains. Towards the end of the week, the models hint at the next monsoonal moisture surge. I’m not sold on it yet.
Today through Thursday… Afternoon showers and thunderstorms will be few and far between. Consider yourself lucky if you get measurable precip. Afternoons will be breezy with peak winds in the 20-25mph range.
Lows tonight will mostly be in the mid-30s to mid-40s. The chilly spots will flirt with freezing. Saturday, Sunday, and Monday high temps will be mid-70s to low 80s and lows will be upper 30s to mid-40s. By Tuesday highs will be in the 80s and lows will be in the 40s.
