12:00 Noon, Monday, May 14, 2018
At noon the first heavy thunderstorm of the day is developing in Denver, and the afternoon and evening will likely bring numerous showers and thunderstorms across the Front Range and high plains. Most of us will experience at least a brief shower or thunderstorm, and a few localities are likely to experience a strong thunderstorm with heavy rain and hail.
On Tuesday afternoon thunderstorms will likely re-develop, but overall the atmosphere may be a little drier so that the coverage and duration may be a little less than today. By Wednesday and Thursday the chance for thunderstorms gets pretty small, and the sunshine more abundant.
The mid spring wet pattern will ease off, but probably not go away. It’s looking like another period of cool, wet weather may move into the Front Range region on Friday or early Saturday, but more on that later in the week.
