We’re circling back to Colorado for our third forecast day in a row. What can we xpect from this southern Colorado town?
At 853AM, MT, Pueblo was reporting a temperature of 62 degrees with light rain. An area of low pressure over the Texas Panhandle is ejecting heavy rain through Kansas and Oklahoma, but some lower level moisture is being pressed into the Rockies, with low ceilings and fog accompanying some light rain along the entirety of the Colorado Front Range, though Pueblo wasn’t as murky as Denver or Colorado Springs.
Aloft, the pattern will remain stagnant, with Pueblo lying on the eastern edge of a ridge, and the low level disturbance in the Panhandle will unravel and shift to the east southeast. By tomorrow morning, Pueblo and the rest of Colorado will be back in a monsoonal pattern, with showers and thunderstorms cropping up in the higher terrain of the central Rockies. North of Pueblo, low conditions will linger, but it Pueblo has been socked in a bit less than other parts of the region, and a recovery will come quicker. Some blow off might lead to afternoon showers, but for the most part, expect a return to a generally quiet summer time pattern.

Obviously, there is dissent on how long moisture will linger over Colorado. I am not impressed and think, quite apparently, that Pueblo stands towarm up fairly quickly. I’m buying the NAM which usually isn’t a popular seller with many outlets. Here is the radar that looks a little more active over the Colorado Front Range.
