Generally dry and very warm through the weekend

1:30 PM MDT, Friday August 16, 2019

The atmosphere over Colorado should continue to be dry with little or no monsoon influence through Monday. The only exception is that a surge of slightly moister and less hot air moved into eastern Colorado from the Great Plains this morning. That should enhance the chances of thunderstorms a little, mainly east of I-25. The chance for thunderstorms Saturday and Sunday will be very small, and afternoon temperatures in the low elevations are likely to climb to the 90s. Vegetation has become dry so be especially careful with fire.

 

There is indication that a surge of monsoon moisture from the Pacific Coast of Mexico might arrive in the middle of next week. It’s not looking like a very impressive surge of moisture, but it may be enough to increase the chances for widespread showers.
