Discussion

A major pattern change continues for Colorado to that of cooler and wetter conditions. More moisture has entered the picture now as the summer monsoonal pattern begins to assert itself in the Desert Southwest and all of this is part of a pattern change from hot and dry to wetter and cooler. High temperatures will reach the 80’s again today, but should actually be confined to the 70’s this weekend rolls around thanks to more cloudiness associated with the increased moisture levels throughout the atmosphere.
