Thursday’s monsoon plume has rotated out of Colorado. As a result we’ll see more sunshine Friday, but temps stay in the mid-80s. I’m including a 10 percent chance of an afternoon thunderstorm across the Front Range.
The mountains can expect morning sunshine with just a 10 percent chance of an afternoon thunderstorm, most likely near the Divide. Highs in the 70s.
Saturday and Sunday start with sunshine and turn partly cloudy in the afternoons. I’m including a 10 percent chance of an afternoon thunderstorm on Sunday. Highs both days around 91.
Next week highs drop into the upper 80s with 10 percent chances of afternoon thunderstorms.
Normally we’d expect the monsoon and afternoon thunderstorms to dry up come September, but it looks like we’ll have to endure one more week of it. We really need the moisture so it might be a good thing.
