Brief cool spell Sunday night through Tuesday morning

9 AM, Saturday, June 19, 2021

As the Little River Band once sang, “time for a cool change.” That change is coming, but it won’t last long.

Today is likely to be another hot day (but not record hot) with a considerable amount of clouds around and some locations getting an afternoon thunderstorm. Sunday will be warm at first, but the cold front may move into southeastern Wyoming and northern Colorado before evening, and then south through eastern Colorado during the evening. There may be a few thunderstorms around during the afternoon, and then a period of low clouds and some areas of drizzle or light rain Sunday night or early Monday. Monday’s high temperatures in the lower elevation may struggle to reach 75. But drier and hotter weather should be back by midweek.

The solstice occurs Sunday, June 20th, at 9:32 PM MDT. That will be just in time for the start of our 36-hour cool spell.

Western Colorado, where the drought persists, will not see much cooler weather or rain from this cold front.
