High-pressure and upper-level ridge will begin the week over the Rockies and then get pushed east over the Great Plains late in the week as a trough moves into the Northwest and Hurricane Ian moves inland and through the southeast.  This will block up the weather pattern and any precipitation chances and result in warmer than normal daytime highs in the upper 70’s and low 80’s during the first half of the week and reach into the mid and upper 80’s late in the week.  Overnight lows will be in the upper 40’s and low 50’s with generally northwest and south winds 10-15 mph.  Saturday upper-level trough moves in with cooler temps and evening rain chances over the weekend.

They were founded in 2008 as a professionally trained classical chamber music ensemble with two trumpets, horn, trombone and tuba. They perform exclusively their own music, which is an original blend of musical styles from Mozart to Madonna, and perform dozens of concerts and outreach programs each season. In Colby, they will present “That 70s Show”, which includes music from 1770s, 1870s, and 1970s!
