Discussion

An upper level ridge will be centered south of Colorado for today and this will allow for some subtropical moisture in the region, but not quite as prevalent as in recent days. By later this week, however, the center of the ridge will shift to the east and this may allow more moisture to move back into the region from our southwest. As a result, the threat for showers and thunderstorms will resume later this week and continue this weekend. For the next several days, high temperatures will not be far from the 90 degree mark which is right about normal for this time of year in Denver.
