It was a sunny morning across the state with light and variable
winds. Early morning lows were in the 30`s north to the lower 40`s
south. By late morning, readings had warmed into the 50`s across
most of the state.
High pressure over the midwest will continue to produce clear
skies and light winds for the region. Dry and warm conditions
will be present for the weekend, with much above average
temperatures expected. Ridging will continue to build across the
central region which will allow for dry conditions into Monday.
An upper level trough will then push east out of the central
Rockies by mid-week bringing precipitation chances back to the
state for Tuesday into Wednesday. Temperatures will cool slightly
for mid to late week, but still remain above the seasonal averages
for late October.
