Weekend weather update

6 AM MDT, Friday, July 23, 2021

It has been a while since I’ve posted, and that’ s because we have been in a typical (and not very interesting) July pattern with a small percentage of the Front Range receiving a late day thundershower and low elevation temperatures reaching into the 90s.

I don’t have any big changes to report, but there is a small change today and Saturday that may increase the chance for a late day thunderstorm, and the extra clouds will probably keep some portions of the Front Range a little below 90. The flash flood watch currently in the foothills is mostly to keep us aware that if a thunderstorm moves across an area recently burned by wildfire, there could be very rapid and dangerous runoff. Thunderstorms are likely to become more scarce again by Monday, along with low elevation temperatures rising back into the 90s.

You may have noticed that smoke haze from western fires is mostly gone. Don’t get too used to that. The fires are still there, it’s just that the wind direction is steering it more to the north of the Front Range region. I’m dreading its return sometime next week.

    Thanks Matt! We are camping up by rainbow lakes weekend. The weather underground forecast showed a 50 to 60% chance of rain today and tomorrow. Do you think it will just be scattered thundershowers, and nothing too continuous?
