DENVER — We have enjoyed some mid-May warmth over the past few days with temperatures above normal for a change! Highs soared into the 90s across southeastern Colorado Thursday afternoon, while Denver reached a high of 81 degrees. This marked the third straight day with highs reaching the low 80s in the metro area.
Widely scattered showers and thunderstorms will diminish overnight with skies remaining mostly cloudy. Lows will stay in the 50s on the plains, with 40s in the mountains.
A cold front will move into Colorado Friday and bring a better chance for thunderstorms. Extreme northeastern Colorado is under a slight risk that these storms will produce some larger hail, gusty winds. Temperatures will drop into the 70s on Friday for Denver with 50s in the mountains.
Showers will linger on Saturday with highs in the low to middle 60s. Sunday will be mostly sunny with highs in the middle 60s.
A stronger storm system will arrive early next week with a better chance for rain and much cooler temperatures. There will be accumulating snow in the mountains Monday and Tuesday and a slight chance for snow in the Denver area Tuesday morning! Highs will be in the upper 40s to low 50s.
Stay tuned for updates on the changing weather.
