Tim Chuey Weather:

It seems like we’ve heard this one before. We have more sun and warming, followed by more clouds and cooling, then back again.

high pressure ridge (“Arch” shape) has brought back the sunshine and is warming us up again. A low pressure trough (“U” shape) will move through and a weak cold front already moved through for another round of clouds and slight cooling. Another cold front will come through by mid week. It seems like this seesaw temperature pattern will last a little while longer, but the cooling won’t be by very much before temperatures start to rise again. It will stay dry with possible thunderstorms in Douglas county mid week and maybe showers in the mountains.

Partly cloudy today, mostly clear tonight, mostly sunny Tuesday AM, partly cloudy Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday night highs 86-82 lows  48-55. Partly cloudy Thursday AM, mostly sunny in the afternoon, mostly clear Thursday night, mostly sunny Friday AM, partly cloudy Friday afternoon and evening, mostly cloudy Friday night, then partly cloudy Saturday through Sunday highs 82-85 cooling to near 80 by Sunday lows 55-52. (seasonal averages high 83 low 52)

Because weather forecasting is a combination of science, intuition, and timing there can be no absolute guarantees that individual forecasts will be 100% accurate. Nature is in a constant state of flux and sudden unexpected weather events can happen.
