Top 10 weather days Sunday with plenty of sunshine and above average temperatures.
Sunny and dry again across southern Colorado, with stray showers in the extreme S Sangres region. Other than that, there are some clouds in the mountains this afternoon but no rain. The Draconid meteor shower reaches its peak tonight, and will be best viewed after sunset – not before sunrise. Look up and to the south. From 10 to 20 meteors visible per hour tonight, be sure to give your eyes time to adjust first.

Sunny this morning with PM clouds appearing, especially in the south: south of Sangres, high points on Rutabat, extreme south of Sawatch. Bathing is possible along the CO/NM border at Sangres. Otherwise, a dry afternoon with rain not in the forecast. The night is cool with clear skies – good for sky watching (and meteor viewing).
Extended forecast forecast:
A similar type of dry and above normal temperatures await us on Monday with temperatures still 5-12 degrees above average. Once again, plenty of sunshine, but with a few more clouds than today during the afternoon. More cloud cover arrives on Tuesday as upwelling arrives. Isolated mountain showers are possible but the Front Range Pass should remain dry.
A low pressure area approaches from the northwest Wednesday into Thursday, swinging a cold front across Colorado in the process. This classic rain-type frontal system will bring us high-altitude rain and snowflakes, and introduce a cold, crisp air mass that will make next weekend feel more like October. We’re dry again heading into next weekend.
