FTB 09-26-2015: Day Three Of Sunshine For Most

Issue Date: 9/26/2015
Issue Time: 7:55AM

— NO FLOOD THREAT TODAY

The mornings have been getting cooler, but the afternoons have been staying plenty warm for Colorado during the past few days. As the water vapor image shows, below, more of the same will continue for today as our resident high pressure ridge maintains dominance over the Southwest U.S. Warming mid-level temperatures will boost afternoon temperatures by a few degrees compared to yesterday. Some low-clouds may hang around the Nebraska and Kansas borders through early afternoon. However, once again, neither rainfall nor flooding are expected.
