Wednesday, May 25th Midday Update
Your afternoon will remain mostly sunny with highs in the 70s and 80s Expect a typical breezy afternon, but wind will not be overwhelmingly gusty. Overall a nice day to be out... and our last drier day.
Better rain chances move in by Thursday, as a storm system moves up from the southwest. Hi resolution models bring in rainfall before noon on Thursday across the higher elevations, before storms drift over lower elevations by the early afternoon hours. Rainfall intensity and location will greatly determine any flooding potential over the Waldo Canyon burn scar. Keep in mind we would need a prolonged period of moderate rain or a short period of very heavy rainfall to cause significant flash flooding. As far as thunderstorm strength, we may see a few severe thunderstorms roaming the Pikes Peak Region and Southern Colorado. Best chances will be on the Plains. Temps will be cooler in the 60 & 70s
Friday will be the coolest day of the forecast, with high temperatures only in the 50s and 60s. Rain chances look to be the best we will see this week... offering up more of a widespread steady rainfall. Rainfall chances will begin to taper late in the day before we get partial clearing overnight.
Your Memorial Day Weekend forecast doesn't look bad at all. The mornings will be sunny and dry, with the afternoons being mild with a chance for a few spotty showers and storms. We'll continue to fine tune the details as we get closer...
