A cooler start thanks to clear skies and calm winds last night, but not to worry, we warm up nicely this afternoon. Highs will find the low to mid 80s, with even warmer air this weekend. Overall, a gorgeous day is planned, with sunny skies, low humidity, and light winds. Moving forward though, changes are in the forecast.
With very warm air moving in over the coming days and increasing moisture off the Gulf of Mexico, afternoon pop up showers and storms are likely. Where these form will vary, but timing will mainly be during the afternoon and evening hours Friday through Sunday. Though I can't entirely rule out an isolated shower or storm tomorrow afternoon, any potential will be across the Plateau. Better chances will come thereafter, with a cold front bringing another bout of showers/storms Sunday into Monday. As touched on above and can be depicted below, it's going to get very warm very quickly. Looking at one example of guidance below, highs will sore into the upper 80s by Sunday, with some likely around the 90 mark. Thankfully, the passing cold front will bring temperatures down to our usual average Monday and Tuesday of next week.
Enjoy the beautiful day we have ahead of us today. Don't forget to also check out our video forecast below, while also hitting that follow button on Twitter and Facebook for additional daily updates. Have a good one!
