DENVER- Summer officially begins on Friday! Cooler air will be moving into the metro area, though, over the next few days. We even have a chance for SNOW in the high country on Saturday for our first full weekend of summer!
Highs were in the low to mid-80s on the plains and 60s and 70s in the mountains for Thursday. A Tornado Watch is in effect into tonight for the eastern plains from Sterling to Holyoke and Burlington. Strong storms have been pushing east and affecting the plains while it remains dry in Denver.
Another cold front will slide into Colorado on Friday and that means more unsettled weather for the weekend. Highs will be in the low 70s on Friday in Denver with showers and thunderstorms likely in the afternoon. There is a slight risk of severe weather in Denver on Friday. In the mountains, highs will be in the 60 with thunderstorms likely.
The weekend will be quite cool for late June. Highs will only be in the upper 60s to low 70s both Saturday and Sunday with rain and thunderstorms likely. In the mountains, highs will be in the upper 40s to mid 50s with plenty of showers. Saturday night and early Sunday, the snow level will drop to around 10,000 feet over the northern and central mountains!
Good news: The weather pattern will shift a bit next week with warmer and drier conditions returning to Colorado! We should finally reach the 90-degree mark in Denver late next week!
