Discussion

Hot and dry weather will continue here in the southern Rockies over the next few days as persistent southwest flow continues with an upper level trough in the northwestern part of the country. The threat for showers and thunderstorms will be quite small; consequently, elevated fire danger risks will continue for the next few days and there will be areas of smoke due to current on-going wildfires. There is the chance for a shift in the winds late this week to more of a northwesterly direction which could actually allow for some more sub-tropical moisture to advance into Colorado at the end of the week. This change in winds will help to increase the chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms at the end of the week and during the upcoming weekend and high temperatures may be a couple of degrees lower compared to the next few days.
