After a long stretch of warm, dry weather some cooler unsettled weather is on the way for late Thursday and Friday. However, this is not shaping up to be a classic wet Spring storm. After a cool start on Saturday, warmer weather should be back in place by Sunday.
The first real chance for rain is late Thursday afternoon and evening as the upper atmosphere cools and convective showers and a few thunderstorms form. There is a good chance that most of the Front Range will see some rain, but amounts will probably range from very little in some places to local downpours in a few spots. Snowline is likely to be up near treeline.
Friday is likely to be cooler and mostly cloudy with another period or two of precipitation possible. The chance for snow may descend to the foothills, but accumulations are most likely in areas above 8000 feet.
