Areas of early morning fog
Warm weekend ahead
DENVER - A weak system dropped temperatures a bit for Thursday, about 10-degrees cooler than Wednesday. Cool 50s last through the early morning.
As those temperatures drop through the 50s, areas of fog will form. Farther east of I-25 the fog may get thick enough in some areas for light rain to form before daybreak Friday.
The morning fog will clear up over the plains, but the humidity will remain and will turn into a few thunderstorms. There continues to be a chance for severe storms tomorrow, this time farther to the east over the high plains and primarily in the afternoon and early evening.
Meanwhile, the wind will continue for the next few hours too, especially in the mountains and for the western slope. Although getting quieter Friday, the wind won't totally calm down for all of us until we get into the weekend.
Denver will have less wind Friday, and it will be much warmer. We start off near 50, but lunchtime temperatures will be close to 80, and we'll be in the 80s for the afternoon. The Denver storm chance is 10% for Friday.
There may be a few pop-up showers and storms this weekend, primarily in the high country, but overall a pleasant stretch of weather is expected for outdoor activities through Memorial Day. Temperatures will stay in the 80s through early next week.
