11 Breaking Weather Team Forecast Discussion
Wednesday, May 27th
We will be warmer today...temperatures will climb into the 70s and lower 80s for areas outside of the mountains. Higher elevations will reach the 60s today. There will be a few spotty storms roaming parts of Southern Colorado. In fact, a few severe storms will be possible on the far Eastern Plains late this afternoon and evening. Large hail, strong wind, lightning, heavy rain, and an isolated tornado is not out of the question. Again, that would be mainly east and southeast of La Junta.
Thursday will offer more of the same...spotty strong storms that will likely favor areas east of the I-25 Corridor. Temperatures will be in the 70s to lower 80s for most outside of the mountains.
Friday will give us a better chance for rain that might be heavier and a bit more widespread, so we will be tracking that trend closely.
Saturday looks cooler with more clouds, and possibly too cool to develop any heavy showers and storms. Light rain will be possible, but the big stuff may be kept at bay...
Sunday offers up the chance for some more spotty storms... it will be warmer with highs returning to the 70s and 80s and drier, despite the lingering rain chance.
Monday looks very similar and warmer still with our warmest day of the week on track for Tuesday. Some areas may even break into the 90s! It will also offer a break from the storms we've seen lately.
