Warm Before the Storm – Record Highs Possible Tuesday
Not everyone will see near record warmth on Tuesday, but if you are on the plains east of the Rockies from Cheyenne, Wyoming south through New Mexico be ready for T-shirt type temperatures Tuesday afternoon.
The wind flow aloft across the Rocky Mountains will turn from westerly to southwesterly ahead of a cold front moving in from the west bringing a setup for a warm day east of the Rockies.
Breezy conditions tonight, along the I-25 corridor will keep things a bit warmer tonight giving us a warm start to the day on Tuesday.
Tuesday afternoon with a southwesterly wind aloft and a southerly wind at the surface temperatures in Pueblo, Alamosa and Albuquerque, could set new records before slightly cooler temperatures Wednesday and Thursday.
