Across the region this afternoon, skies are mostly sunny to sunny, with some scattered cloud cover persisting ahead of a surface trough which is currently sitting over the Highway 27 corridor. Temperatures as of 100 PM MDT are ranging in the 80s with winds southerly gusting to 20-30 mph at times in the east ahead of the trough. Along and behind it, light/variable transitions to west-northwest flow.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms are the main wx concerns this weekend in the short term, with some potential for some convection to become strong or severe.

For the rest of the afternoon hrs into tonight, the first area around the 22z-00z timeframe for a 15-20% chance of a few storms developing will be in the small marginal risk area in the E/SE.
This activity will hinge on the speed and positioning of the aforementioned surface trough which currently sits over the western CWA, along with the upper trough which is slowly moving through the CWA Latest CAMs do support best initiation east and southeast of the CWA, but will keep a chance in there for a couple hours before the activity shifts east.

For the evening hours, the focus shifts to the west-northwest where isolated/scattered convection is already forming ahead of a cold front in the central Rockies. CAMs are showing activity increasing towards 22z as it approaches the western portions of our northeast Colorado counties. Instability does drop off some as convection crosses the Colorado border, with soundings showing best threat to be winds as DCape peaks in the 1600-1800j/kg range around the 21z- 00z timeframe. Convection begins to fall apart from 00z-06z Sunday and will continue previous shift's thinking of lowering pops slightly through 06z as any remaining activity dissipates by 12z Sunday. Dry air at the surface should preclude any large hail factors, but small hail can't be ruled out.

Going into Sunday, the front that settles south into the area tonight will stall over the region during the day. Southerly flow at the surface with W/SW flow aloft will create another hot day area- wide. The stalled front will have rw/trw initiating by late afternoon into the early evening hours. The Marginal risk for severe has been expanded to most of the CWA Wind and hail threats are present with any storms that develop as DCape values around 1800- 2000j/kg and SBCape around 1700j/kg. PW values in KS/NE where best convective chances are will increase to an inch plus, throwing in heavy rainfall potential into the threat mix. Precip expected through 06z Monday before tapering off. Strong southerly flow remains overnight, so no big drops for lows expected compared to the last couple nights.

For temps, looking for above normal highs on Sunday with a range in the upper 90s to low 100s. Some locales may be close to tying or even breaking records. Please refer to the Climate section below for area records on this date. With the airmass being dry, looking for heat indices to peak at or below forecasted highs. Overnight lows for tonight will range in the 60s, with warmest areas along/east of Highway 25. For Sunday night, 60s along and west of Highway 27. East of there, upper 60s to mid 70s, warmest along and east of Highway 83.

For the long term, we are looking at the potential for showers and thunderstorms daily for the middle to latter part of the week. As an upper high strengthens along the Mid-Atlantic Coast, the upper low will struggle to move east across the Northwest CONUS. The cold front from Tuesday is expected to lift north as a warm front Wednesday where it will sit over the far northern portions of the area on Thursday as weak shortwaves continue to move over the region and strengthen a lee trough over the Colorado Plains. The best time frame for any showers and storms will be during the afternoon and evening hours Wednesday through Saturday, with potential for showers and storms throughout the day Wednesday.

Temperatures on Wednesday will be quite comfortable with highs in the upper 60s to upper 70s and lows in the 50s to lower 60s.
Thursday will be a bit warmer with highs in the 80s and overnight lows in the 60s. Friday and Saturday continue to warm back up with highs forecast to be in the upper 80s to 90s. Overnight lows on Friday could be in the 60s to lower 70s while Saturday night lows are forecast to fall into the upper 50s to 60s.
