Just a quick look at the next few days before the straight job gets rolling, and I’m finally feeling somewhat back to normal as I continue to fight this nasty strep infection!
DAMP AND DREARY: The last time we talked I did tell you that the next credible threat for rain would be Wednesday/Thursday of this week, and that is surely turning out to be the case. The cold front has dropped through Colorado, taking our clear skies and mild conditions with it. Denver is 40, Pueblo is 51, Limon is 44. All have overcast skies right now. NEXRAD radar shows a rain shield with varying intensity of showers in it right along the whole Front Range and stretching down into the Eastern Plains of the state. We’ll be keeping this around for the next day or two.
WHAT’S GOING ON?: A cutoff upper low currently over SoCal and southern Nevada is spinning, and it will soon get in gear and head more directly toward us. As it does, we can expect our showers and thunderstorms to continue in the area. The good is that we need the moisture badly, but at least for the moment, we will be getting it in rain form, and not snow – unless you’re up north and in the high country. Larimer County is under a Winter Storm Warning until noon tomorrow. As the system moves past us, which should be tomorrow afternoon, we’ll expect some gradual clearing during the evening and overnight, with Friday being a much sunnier affair than the next 48 hours will be.
Let’s put it together for you:
And here’s the forecast:
Today – cloudy skies, periods of showers with PM thunderstorms moving in. High only 56.
Tonight – Overcast, showers and thunderstorms, lows near 40.
Thursday – Continued cloudy, scattered showers and perhaps a lingering thunderstorm. High 55.
The straight job calls, we’ll update this for you this evening. Have a great Wednesday!
