Discussion

A strong upper level disturbance raises the chance for some strong thunderstorm activity later today with heavy rain, hail and very gusty winds possible across northeastern Colorado. That storm threat will continue tomorrow as well as a cold front brings more instability to the region along with a brief cool down. Beyond that, however, high temperatures will once again reach or even surpass the 90 degree mark on Sunday and Monday before it cools off again by the middle of next week. As far as the sun is concerned, for the second day in a row sunspot AR1504 erupted and sent a coronal mass ejection (CME) towards the Earth. This new CME is expected to merge with the initial CME from two days ago to deliver a combined blow to the Earth's magnetic field on Saturday. Sky watchers should watch for auroras very late tonight and again tomorrow night.
