Mostly dry and breezy week with increasing Red Flag threats.
There have been some storms along the northern border of Colorado throughout the day, most of that activity is translating to gusty wind speeds in that area and should dissipate after sunset Monday night. We will be on the tail end of a cold front by Tuesday morning and temperatures should remain in the upper 80s.low 90s (not as hot as last week) as a result. Wind speeds will be breezy for the next few afternoons along with warm and dry conditions. By the end of this week, there should be an elevated concern for windier conditions and Red Flag Warnings are to be expected.
A more significant cold front is expected to pass through the region early next week. Unlike this week’s series of fronts moving around the region with warm/dry/breezy results, if the forecast holds up next week could be a windier and cooler mid September forecast that would coincide with the the start of fall on the Western Slope. This should be a leaf changer if it verifies.
The Autumn Equinox is just 9 days away.
