Detailed Forecast

Forecast as of Monday, August 31st at 5:00 PM

Tonight: We have a weak cold front moving through southern Wyoming. This will continue to give us a chance of scattered thunderstorms throughout the evening. Low temperatures overnight will be in the mid 50's for our eastern counties with upper 40's and lower 50's for our western counties. Winds will generally stay light out of the west at 5-10 mph.

Tuesday: A ridge of high pressure builds back into the viewing area starting on Tuesday, so we're expecting to see mostly sunny with highs in the upper 80's and lower 90's for Nebraska and Colorado. Areas off to our west will be a bit cooler in the low to mid 80s. Some remnant monsoonal moisture will continue to hang around the area, giving us a chance for some more afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Overnight lows will be in the mid 50's with westerly winds at 10-15 mph.

Wednesday: Temperatures continue to warm on Wednesday with Mostly Sunny skies across the region. High temperatures will reach into the upper 80s and low to mid 90s. Winds look to pick up a bit as a trough pushes in from the northwest, so we're expecting to see some breezy winds, especially in the wind prone areas off to our west. Nighttime lows in the mid 50's with mostly clear to partly cloudy skies.

Thursday: Different day, nearly identical forecast for Thursday. We're expecting to see mostly sunny skies across the area with above average temperatures in the 80s and 90s in the afternoon. Overnight, seasonal lows with mostly clear skies.
