Cooler/showery Friday, then a taste of summer

1:00 PM MDT, Thursday, May 28, 2015.

The persistent wet pattern is slowly relaxing, but not until after a cooler Friday with numerous showers around. By the second half of the weekend we may may seeing our first above average temperatures in a long time.

There will be a scattering of showers and thunderstorms around this afternoon with a few spots experiencing a briefly heavy thunderstorm. A cold front on Friday will bring some upslope flow and result in cooler temperatures (60s lower elevations). There will likely be numerous showers and thundershowers around in the afternoon and evening, and maybe some low clouds & drizzle in some areas Friday night.

But Saturday afternoon we should be drying out. I can’t rule out the chance for a late day thundershower Saturday through Monday, but the chances should be below average (climatological average for measurable rain along the Front Range in June is about 25-30% per day).

For Sunday through Tuesday, temperatures are likely to rise above average, reaching around 80 on Sunday and in the 80s Monday and maybe Tuesday too in the Denver-Boulder-Fort Collins area.
