Warm, then turning cooler and wetter late Sunday

1:20 PM, Friday, April 8, 2016

It’s looking like most of the weekend should be nice for outdoor activity, although perhaps a with bit more clouds around than in recent days, and an increasing chance for April showers late Sunday.

 

Saturday will likely see a few isolated showers or a thundershower develop during the  afternoon in mountain areas, but there is only a very small chance for that in the lower foothills and plains.

 

On Sunday there is a much better chance for rainshowers and cooler temperatures in all areas late in the day (changing to snow in the higher foothills). Any chance for snow in the lower foothills and plains Sunday evening is small and would be mainly in areas with heavy or more persistent showers. At this point it appears that the south Denver suburbs and Palmer Divide would be the most likely locations of some wet snow Sunday evening.

 

I’ll update Sunday if there are major changes to the forecast.

    I love the blog. Any time that I hear about a storm I come here to see what you say – you’ve always got lots of cool meteorological details.

    So I’ve heard some rumors of a “mega storm” being predicted for this weekend. . Any comments?

      Yeah, I’ll be saying something about that soon. There will likely be a big wet storm in the Southwest/Rockies this weekend, but the local details and what portion is likely to be snow in the lower elevations are still uncertain.

      It looks like you are reading a very old blog from April 8th. Anyway, it will be wet at times this weekend, especially this afternoon (saturday). And Fort Collins has a slightly better chance for a big thunderstorm than Denver or Boulder.
