PM Update: Another cool night and a splendid Thursday

Our awesome stretch of weather continued today with highs just a touch warmer than they’ve been the last few, but still well within spectacular range. Highs right around 80, supported by still low humidity levels and lots of sun, made it one to savor. And, there’s more of that tomorrow as well!

Through Tonight: A light south wind helps boost dew points slightly, but not enough to keep us from being rather cool again overnight. Look for temperatures to range from near 50 to near 60 under mostly clear skies.

Tomorrow (Thursday): Partly to mostly sunny skies are the rule, and temperatures should rise up to near 80 or into the low 80s, much like today, or a tad warmer. By late day, you may notice a bit of humidity if you try hard, but it won’t be a big deal. Southeast winds blow around 5-10 mph.

Snow: On Monday we mentioned it was snowing in Alaska. Today it’s snowing in parts of Colorado’s high country (mainly 11,000 feet and higher). Pike’s Peak web cams show plenty of the white stuff, and up to 10” was expected in spots before the day is out. The same system has also brought flash flooding to the areas of Colorado Springs impacted by wildfires earlier in the year.

Pollen update: Grass pollen is MODERATE, weed pollen is LOW/MODERATE, and mold spores are MODERATE.
