Afternoon-evening showers and thunderstorms this weekend

12:15 PM MDT, Friday, May 14, 2021

We are in a pattern with a higher-than-average amount of atmospheric moisture over the Front Range region, but without an organized storm system, at least through the first half weekend. The result for today, Saturday, and Sunday is generally party sunny and dry mornings to early afternoons (except for some localized fog or low clouds in the early morning), and then a scattering of showers and thunderstorms from mid afternoon through early evening. Not every location will get wet each day, but by Sunday night most places will probably see rain at least once.

By the end of the weekend there may be an organized, slow-moving storm system moving into the Front Range region that taps the moisture and leads to a more steady period of clouds and rain late on Sunday and/or on Monday. It’s not looking to be cold enough for snow except the higher elevations (above Nederland and Estes).
