Discussion

As high pressure builds in to our west over the next couple of days a NW flow of air will develop over the Rockies and this will, at least temporarily, prevent subtropical moisture from reaching this far north. As a result, our threat for showers will diminish and our temperatures will once again climb to rather hot levels on Wednesday and Thursday (low 90’s). Moisture may return again over the Rockies by the time the weekend rolls around and this will enhance the chances for more scattered shower and thunderstorms. The average high temperature at Denver for this time of year is around 89 degrees.
