Drier & warmer, but still some afternoon showers/thundershowers

1:15 PM, Monday, May 25, 2015

Today through Thursday should be warmer and with longer dry intervals than in recent days.  Temperatures in the urban corridor and plains will likely be around average Tuesday-Thursday, with highs in the low 70s.  There is still the risk of afternoon showers and thunderstorms, especially in the mountains. But some locations in eastern Colorado may actually experience a completely dry day.

Although the active wet pattern has relaxed for a while, it’s not gone.  Another moist disturbance near the end of the week may result in widespread rain again.

Although several locations in Colorado are approaching monthly records, we are not in the hardest hit region from the active storm track. Parts of Oklahoma and Texas continue to experience historic flooding. Meanwhile, the weather pattern that has been so persistently wet for us has resulted in persistent  warm and dry conditions in the Northeast and up in Alaska. Fairbanks, Alaska hit a record 86 degrees a couple days ago, while parts of New England went from record snowfall to drought in just a couple months.
