Cooler, maybe some rain Thursday-Friday

5:15 AM MST, Wednesday, June 17, 2020

The current spell of hot, dry weather will take a temporary hiatus Thursday and Friday. Afternoon temperatures on Thursday are likely to be 15-20 degrees cooler than they have been these last few days. There will also be an increased chance for showers and thunderstorms Thursday afternoon and evening, and maybe on Friday too. Not everyone will benefit from some rain, but it will likely be the best chance we have seen for rain in a while, and there may be a few local spots with locally strong thunderstorms.  We will probably trend back toward warmer weather over the weekend just in time for the June solstice on Saturday afternoon at 3:44 PM.

Gusty thunderstorms today, cooler Monday

Thunderstorms are likely to move through the Front Range region this afternoon, and a few spots may see brief heavy rain & hail. Many areas won’t get the heavy precipitation, but gusty winds are likely across a big portion of the area.  The atmosphere should dry out this evening and another warm day is expected Sunday with little or no rain.

A cold front Sunday evening should usher in a cooler air mass with gusty winds. Afternoon highs will be somewhat cooler Monday and Tuesday. There may even be some areas of low clouds and drizzle that develop in and near the foothills on Monday.
