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 around 50 Wednesday and Thursday. Lows in the 30s tonight, and 40s Friday through Monday nights.
Our average high is 54°, low 32°.
