August 17th Forecast


Smoky skies will continue to rest in the Western Slope overnight. Morning lows will be closer to our averages with the lower valleys in the 60s and upper 50s. Afternoon high temperatures will be extremely similar to what we saw yesterday. We will see breezier winds to the north and these stronger winds will help to lift smoke out of the valleys. A cold front will pass through the western slope Wednesday and Thursday. Highs will drop 10 degrees across the board, and we will see heavy rainfall for Wednesday and Thursday afternoon. This rain system will be short lived as rain chances will start to clear up for the weekend. As our rain chances die back down expect highs to return to the upper 80s and lower 90s in the valleys by the end of the weekend.
