a bit drier, maybe gusty winds

1PM, Friday, August 29, 2014



I got back in Colorado yesterday at the end of our string of showery days. The good news is that the showers around this afternoon will be more hit-and-miss, and the number of showers and thunderstorms over the 3-day weekend will be low, so some areas may not get wet at all. Watch for brief spells of afternoon lightning in the mountains. Temperatures should be near average, which in the lower elevations means maximums within a few degrees of 80.


One element to be aware of is the wind. A broad portion of the jet stream will sag toward Colorado. It’s not the kind of setup that is expected to bring widespread precipitation or a strong cold front, but it could kick up some gusty west winds at times, especially Sunday-Monday.


It’s looking warm next week to start September.
