Windy and Unseasonably Warm Tuesday; Windy and Much Cooler Wednesday
4:30 p.m. Mon 10 March 2014
Low pressure taking shape in Colorado deepens overnight and into Tuesday. This will keep a steady southerly breeze in place and make for a windy day Tuesday with daytime heating and mixing.
The low-level flow will bring some low clouds our way overnight, and these factors should keep minimum temperatures very mild for mid-March: in the 50s. Tuesday will be unseasonably warm as surface winds turn to the southwest ahead of an approaching cold front.
The front passes Tuesday evening, and winds will turn to the north and continue quite strong. Unfortunately, this front will come through dry and we’re looking at high fire danger both tomorrow and Wednesday. Highs drop from the 80s tomorrow to the 50s on Wednesday.
A dry pattern continues into later this week with cool to cold nights and mild days. Highs climb back into the 70s by the weekend. There’s a pretty good chance of frost and/or a light freeze Thursday morning so we’re not out of the plant danger zone just yet.
Here are the numbers:
Tonight: Increasing Clouds Late…Lows 51 to 56
Tuesday: Mostly Sunny, Windy, Unseasonably Warm…..Highs 78 east to 86 west
Wednesday: Very Windy and Much Cooler…..40/56
Thursday: Sunny, Frost A.M.…..32/63
Friday: Partly Cloudy…..38/66
Saturday: Partly Cloudy …..44/70
Sunday: Mostly Sunny, Windy …45/73
Monday: Partly Cloudy.....39/68
May You Have a Terrific Tuesday!
