An active storm track across the West this week will keep temperatures cooler than average after Monday. There is also likely to be periods with clouds and some rain or snow. But at this point a major precipitation events appears unlikely.
A strong storm is likely to track across northern Colorado Tuesday and Tuesday night, which is a track that would keep the heaviest precipitation to the north, and result in relatively minor effects in the Front Range region. But some snow is likely in the mountains, and some showery rain or rain changing to snow in the low elevations. That storm is likely to trigger severe thunderstorms on the Great Plains late Tuesday, and there may be a few thunderstorms develop in eastern Colorado either Monday or Tuesday afternoons.
Although drier weather is likely Wednesday, it will be cold in the upper atmosphere which can cause a few showers to develop during the afternoon. The chance for showers may increase Thursday as another storm approaches from the west.
