So, High Pressure, deliverer of great weather the past few days, departs. In it’s wake, while we start out with sunshine this morning, clouds will take over by lunchtime. It is possible, late in the day, for a shower for Fremont, Teller and northern El Paso Counties to briefly get wet.
An amazing Good Friday leads in to a hard-to-believe Saturday. Skies will fade from morning to afternoon, but temps will challenge 80F in many cases, and for the Plains, could briefly snuggle up near 90F!

It’s your ski report for the week ending Sunday, April 21
We are down to the final days to head to ski country. Some resorts have closed, others close Easter Sunday.
It is a tranquil pattern now, through Saturday night. Pretty clear, day and night, and warmer temperatures…beginning Friday.
A cold front passed through early to mid Wednesday morning, but because the jet stream is essentially overhead, pockets of energy caught up in it will keep skies somewhat chaotic tonight and
Quite the remarkable improvement for weather today…and tomorrow and Tuesday, with High Pressure large and in charge, drying out those skies, keeping winds light until Tuesday, and allowing that April sun to warm us up in to the 60s and 70s.
Clouds and flurries/sprinkles are rapidly clearing up this evening and tonight…and it will be a chilly night.
But radically different weather for…
Partial clearing in to this evening, and winds die down too, in the storm’s wake. But in clearing out, the storm’s large circulation will actually pull down in it’s wake, a weak disturbance that sets off snow showers later
Having been out there just 8 days ago, I can vouch for deep snow. I can also vouch for the necessity for sunscreen, because of high sun angles and high snow glare.
Our storm clears out today, and later today, these blustery winds will begin to relax…and become not so much an issue. But in clearing out, the storm’s large circulation will actually pull down…
The jet lifts northward, a ridge of High Pressure is departing, and down-slope wind all combine to bring early Summer-like weather! Records are definitely in the realm of possibility today (80F for Springs, 85F is the record for Pueblo.)
Spectacular through Tuesday. The jet lifts northward, a ridge of High Pressure comes across to visit from Vegas to Colorado over the next 2 days, and down-slope wind all combine to bring early Summer-like weather! Records are definitely in the realm of possibility Monday & especially Tuesday.
Spectacular Sunday through Tuesday, as the jet lifts northward, a ridge of High pressure comes to visit from Vegas to Colorado over the next 3 days,and downslope wind all combine to bring early Summer-like weather!
There may be a few sprinkles or even a brief sprinkle for a few, early this evening, but the story really is…the mild temperatures through Tuesday. I expect skies to clear out tonight, and it stays spectacular Sunday through Tuesday!
