Nice end-of-summer weekend

1:15 PM, Thursday, September 3, 2015

The 3-day weekend is likely to become progressively drier by Monday with near average temperatures (afternoon highs around 80 in the Front Range urban corridor).

There is a flow of moisture from the tropical Pacific currently over Colorado and Wyoming that will likely last into the early part of the weekend.  That will enhance the chance for scattered afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms. But the lower levels of the atmosphere are rather dry which should limit the extent and duration of heavy rain. Some areas may get very little.

By Sunday the atmosphere is likely to become a bit drier, so the latter part of the holiday weekend is looking good for outdoor activity. Be careful with fire. The fire danger isn’t high, but many areas have been drier than average for over a month (especially north of I-70).
