Discussion

Large upper level ridge will remain in control of the region’s weather through the weekend. This pattern will generate continued very warm temperatures for the southern Rockies and enough sub-tropical moisture will be around to allow for the slight chance for showers and thunderstorms each day into the weekend. By early next week, the upper level high will shift eastward and this will open the door for a cool frontal passage that will cool things off around here by Tuesday and Wednesday of next week.
