Another wet period begins in Colorado

6:00 AM, Wednesday, June 10, 2015

We are returning to cooler, wet weather today (Wednesday) into to Friday, with the peak possibility of local heavy rain along the Front Range coming late Thursday into early Friday.  It appears we may return to more seasonal weather on the weekend.

A slow moving storm system from the west is bringing some Pacific moisture (including some remnant moisture from last week’s Hurricane Blanca) and drawing up moisture from the Gulf of Mexico too. Showers and thundershowers are already occurring in western Colorado at daybreak and moving slowly east. Sunshine will be very limited today, and a few areas (especially in western Colorado) may experience locally heavy rain.

Thursday afternoon into Friday morning may bring the peak threat to the Front Range and eastern Colorado (and southeastern Wyoming). A few thunderstorms may be severe late Thursday, but locally heavy rain and flash flooding may end up being a bigger story. The showers and thunderstorms Thursday afternoon may evolve into a period of steady rain Thursday night and/or Friday morning.
