Warm and mild conditions will be the order of business for Monday and Tuesday of this week. Get out and play (Thursday too)!
Late Tuesday, the region is expecting a slight uptick in wind speeds and cloud coverage as our next weather maker advances in from the southwest. The Four Corners region should benefit first from rain showers and thunderstorms Tuesday afternoon. This system will be advancing to the north/northwest, so Tuesday night and Wednesday morning should offer up the better measurable rain chances for all areas of the Western Slope. Lingering showers late Wednesday will be possible. There is an expected lull on Thursday and that will be your best chance to get outside and enjoy the mild and dry conditions again. This storm break is expected to be short lived as conditions deteriorate for Friday and the upcoming weekend. Our second weather maker will be advancing in from the north late this week/weekend. Considerably cooler and wetter conditions are in the forecast this weekend along with high elevation snow. There is also a decent signature in the forecast models for a more impactful mid October storm system coming into the region for the middle of next week!
