Fort Collins, Colorado

It’s autumn and we’re forecasting in the Front Range. I can all but guarantee something weird is coming.

At 756PM, MT, Fort Collins was reporting a temperature of 46 degrees with clear skies. A trough driving into the Plains was introducing a brisk northwesterly flow to the flatlands east of Fort Collins, while a mostly westerly flow was emanating from the Rockies.
The trough is on its way east towards the Mid Atlantic, which will help deter the blustery winds, and will encourage a warm up as an upper level ridge builds into Rockies.  Tomorrow will still be a cool day, but by mid-week, a noticeable warm up will arrive in Fort Collins. Clear skies and a dry atmosphere will lead to some chilly mornings despite the warmth.
