Hey everyone! It was a pretty good weekend for us here in Colorado. We didn’t have too much craziness in the weather to work with. Although it did rain in Denver both days, there wasn’t much severe weather reported around the metro. Just some nuisance rain to cool everyone off.
As we continue through this week – things will improve. Slowly, but surely.
An abnormally cool pattern stays put
Rain chances stay elevated through Tuesday
Drier and warmer for mid-week
storm chances return for Friday
The pesky pattern of rain and clouds and cool weather has made its way back into the state. This started up again last Friday and will break down as we head into Tuesday.
With that said, rain and thunderstorms continue for much of tonight and into the day on Tuesday. It won’t be constant but it will be more numerous than not. Keep the rain gear handy. Highs on Tuesday will be similar to today. Only in the lower 70s.
The weak disturbance pushing through will move into the Plains and bring them some severe weather. Meanwhile, we will be on the drying end of the system so clearer skies and warmer temps (back in the 80s!) are expected for Wednesday and Thursday.
By the end of the week, we’ll have another trough roll through the inter-mountain west and that will again bring another round of showers and storms to the state.
This is a pattern that could last through the weekend so stay tuned.
Flooding is still an issue with snowmelt and there is still a lot of snow left on peaks above 12,000 feet. Keep aware if you live near a creek or will be playing in the waters anytime soon.
