Warm temperatures continue through the holiday weekend! Festivities should go uninterrupted and travel weather is looking good around the region.
A storm system is developing out west and will deliver quite the wintry blast to the Rockies and Plains. As it moves towards our region, an area of high pressure delays its arrival, and allows it some time to weaken significantly. A weakening cold front will approach the area late this week, but not before warm and dry weather through most of Saturday. There will likely be limited moisture with this weakened system, at least at first, so showers look few and far between until Saturday night. Moisture flow may increase afterwards, producing a better chance of rain at times Sunday through Tuesday, with temperatures cooling down during that time frame.
Temperature Outlook: Highs in the low to mid 60s through Saturday, 50s to near 60 Sunday through Tuesday, upper 40s to lower 50s Wednesday through Friday. Lows in the 40s Friday through Monday nights, and 30s to around 40 Tuesday through Thursday nights.
Our average high is 54°, low 32°.
