On the weather map we have a high pressure ridge and a cold front over the western half of the nation.

 Ian is expected to push into the Carolina's Friday and Atlanta over the weekend. This will create a block of the ridge and front out west.

The cold front will push into Colorado on Friday dropping high temps from the mid 80s into the low 70s heading into the weekend. Moisture flowing up from Mexico on the western side of the Oklahoma high pressure area will enhance showers and thunderstorms over the area on Friday.

Heading into the weekend the cooler air and moisture are jammed up by Ian giving our area an unsettled pattern thru next week.
