After scattered showers and non-severe thunderstorms this morning, high temperatures will only rise to the upper 50’s to near 60 along with gusty north winds. Isolated to scattered showers will be possible in southern areas this early this afternoon. Overnight, winds will subside and become light and variable. A combination of light winds, mostly clear skies, and dry air will cause overnight temperatures to fall all the way down to the middle to upper 30’s. A few areas of frost cannot be ruled out in the northern Big Country. The NWS has issued a Freeze Watch for Knox CO during this time.
For the weekend, the upper pattern will return to being zonal. As a result, quiet weather will settle in as temperatures rise into the upper 60’s for Saturday and the 80’s for Sunday.
Temperatures will warm to the upper 80’s to near 90 for Monday and Tuesday as the 850 hpa ridge strengthens.
A cold front is forecast to effect our area Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. Being this far out issuing a chance for rain and thunderstorms Tuesday and conditional slight chance for Wednesday is appropriate. Temperatures will fall down to the middle to upper 70’s on Wednesday.
