Cold Front At Noon Today.
Precipitation Forecast Wed - Sat.
According to the calendar fall will begin early Friday morning at 3:04 AM MDT. But the meteorological fall begin the first day of the month. It will certainly feel more like fall tomorrow as the cold front draped across the area this morning gets a secondary push southward tonight.
Today's high temps will be close to seasonal and will range from the low-mid 80's. Cooler air will overspread the area tonight behind the front. Therefore high temps on Thursday will range from near 75 - 80.
Our temperatures will quickly rebound on Friday with highs expected to be in the mid 80's, while Saturday will see highs near 90, and Sunday's highs will range from 90 - 95. Our overnight low temps through the weekend will be near seasonal normal's with readings in the 50's. A few of the normally cold spots will likely dip down into the upper 40's Friday morning.
A few scattered rain showers and t-storms will dot the landscape today into tomorrow. Overall our chances for seeing another widespread heavy rain event like the one we experienced last week are low with this front. A few spots could see some brief heavy rainfall, small hail, and gusty winds with any t-storms that forms. Our chances for measurable rainfall are 20% - 30%.
"Quote- With a general trough (southward jet stream dip) position forecast in the north-central U.S. and a ridge of high pressure (northward jet stream bulge) forecast for much of the West, this region will tend to be warmer than average through much of December.
The jet stream typically separates surface warm air to the south from surface cold air to the north. It also represents the main storm track.
Early in the period, there can be a few episodes of moisture from Mexico and the Pacific, bringing spotty shower and thunderstorm activity."
