Warming trend ahead, with lots of sunshine

Warming trend ahead, with lots of sunshine

We tried to put the feelings of disappointment and frustration behind us last week with three consecutive days in the 80s, but the strong front late Friday brought yet another blast of wintry weather to our region over the weekend. If you don't like our weather, imagine what everyone that lives north of us is thinking. By sunrise, enough cold air will be in place that a lot of the state will have at least sleet pellets mixing with rain, if not minor icing on colder surfaces.

Monday is expected to be mostly sunny with a high of 73 degrees and winds between 15 and 20 miles per hour in the morning, according to the National Weather Service in Pueblo.

He says their goal is to wrap things up late Monday night but miss that target if more outages erupt today. Mostly cloudy with a high around 52.

Happy Monday! After a bitterly cold weekend, temperatures will begin to warm this week with highs near 50 later today.

Monday: Sunny, warm & dry, turning windy... The next system arrives later Wednesday. I have us dry Tuesday night. We will have sunshine mixing in with some clouds to start, but then clouds will increase. Beyond Sunday's infrequent spells of westerly Force 4 winds, the weeks is also set to be calmer as far as the wind goes, with mainly Force 2 and 3 winds on the table for Friday and Saturday (and early Sunday).

A high pressure system will deliver cool weather the beginning part of the week. No significant rainfall is expected, meaning more high fire danger and elevated pollen levels. Sunday high temperatures will be in the upper 40s to lower 50s.
