Warmer Monday

Morning cloudiness will give way to partly sunny skies, dry conditions and noticeably warmer afternoon high temperatures. The risk for a shower returns on Tuesday, with perhaps the best opportunity late Tuesday afternoon and night. Skies clear for Wednesday and it will turn cooler once again. Pleasant fall temperatures will hold for Thursday and Friday.

Forecast Discussion

A cold front will inch through the area over the next couple of days, finally pushing to our south and east later Tuesday and Wednesday. The front is moisture-starved, and we don’t expect much shower activity associated with it. Probably the best chance for showers will be later Tuesday afternoon and night. Rainfall amounts will be light.

The week’s warmth will culminate today, then slowly cool off in the wake of the frontal zone. Temperatures will be back closer to normal for the second half of the workweek.

The next cold front is tentatively scheduled to arrive next Saturday, and it may bring a better coverage of rainfall to the Foothills. The front is stronger, and there will be a bigger chill-down on Sunday, with the inaugural patchy frost possible here by Monday morning, a good 10 days later than average.
