For those who like to get some high country hikes in this time of year, you may be familiar with the tendency for afternoon lightning associated with monsoon-pattern thunderstorms. Those will be around this Saturday and Sunday for both the mountains and plains. So keep an eye to the sky. But for several days now the indications have been for a dry period with the monsoon moisture pushed to the south of Colorado beginning on Monday and possibly lasting all week. That would mean warm conditions with lower than average chances for late day thunderstorms.
