Discussion

High pressure in the upper atmosphere over the Southwest US will continue our very warm weather pattern for the next several days. An upper level disturbance will move over the Great Basin region today and across Colorado overnight increasing the chances for scattered showers and thunderstorms later today and through the day on Wednesday; especially over mountainous regions. By late this week, the upper air ridge will begin shifting eastward over the central Great Plains and Colorado will come under an increasingly moist southwesterly flow of air which will continue the threat for scattered showers and thunderstorms during this upcoming weekend. Elsewhere, the Atlantic remains rather quiet for the time being as far as tropical activity is concerned, but the sun has become somewhat more active with numerous sunspots now visible on the Earth-facing side.
