DENVER (CBS4) – Clouds will be passing over the state Sunday night in westerly flow. There may be a few very, light rain or snow showers in the mountains overnight into Monday morning.
On the weather map, high pressure is transitioning across the Rockies. This will bring in stronger southwesterly winds on Monday. In addition, there is another low pressure trough moving into the Pacific Northwest. This will boost temperatures across the lower elevations into the 70s and low 80s for most. With 60s holding on in areas that are still covered in snow after Friday’s blizzard.
Our region will be sandwiched between these two systems on Monday and Tuesday. This will ramp up the winds and raise the fire danger for some parts of the state.
The trough over the northwest will pass over northern Colorado on Tuesday bringing in a slight chance for rain showers for Denver and the eastern plains. There will also, be a few snow showers in the mountains.
Looking even further ahead we could see a bigger storm system by Friday into Saturday so stay tuned!
