Quite warm conditions return with a ridge overhead Wed/Thur and westerly down slope flow/winds. We’ll touch 80F again! Then another cold front kicks us back to the 60’sF Fri/Sat and yet another cold front takes us down to the 50’sF for the end of the weekend. The previously mentioned snow chances seem very minimal along I-25 at this time.
The cold front from Monday is draped down the Front Range Tuesday (Figure 1). It won’t remain here long. An approaching upper level ridge will help kick up westerly winds and down slope flow to take us to the 80’s for the next couple of days (Figure 5 orange boxes). Very dry conditions (and fire danger) will continue.
The Longer Range Forecast:
Friday and Saturday will be another post-frontal time with things cooled about 15 F from the heat of mid-week (Figure 5 -green boxes). Another cold front takes us another 10 cooler for Sunday and Monday (Figure 5 blue boxes).
That third cold front will be powered by a fairly strong, but open, wave (Figure 3). With temperatures not THAT cold Sunday/Monday and not THAT much moisture around, it looks like snow will be confined to the mountains and foothills at present. Sorry if you were getting excited.
