Weekend Outlook
Another round of rain today, warmer for the weekend
Yesterday's precipitation ended up a bit north of where some models had it projected, but overall was pretty well captured in the data. For those that didn't see much rain, Thursday was still a nice break from the heat. Yesterday's temperatures topped out in the low 70s, more than 20 degrees cooler than the near-record heat of the day prior. Today the cooler than average weather continues, as well as another chance of rain. Rainfall totals for Denver added up to just a few hundredths across

Weekend outlook: The cold returns by Sunday, a chance of snow as well
We hope everyone is enjoying this stretch of beautiful spring weather. We have one more pleasant afternoon to go before sharp changes arrive for the latter half of the weekend. If you have plans for a back yard Easter egg hunt, you may want to consider moving it to Saturday, as Sunday will be quite chilly with areas of snow across much of Northeast and East-Central Colorado. The outlook shows just how big a crash in temperatures we're anticipating over the coming days. From the low 70s today, t

Snowfall totals as flurries continue today, rain and snow showers possible Saturday
Yesterday's storm has departed, leaving in its wake a blanket of snow across the Front Range and eastern plains. While we continue to see those chilly temperatures and pockets of snow/flurries this afternoon, the appreciable snowfall is over. Another coating to 1" will be possible for those that see these showers, but otherwise just a cold start to spring across Northeast Colorado. At our place, we picked up 5.75" of snow, right within our low-end 5 - 10" range forecast issued for west Denver.
Denver Forecast
Weekend outlook includes some rain and snow across the state
As we near the weekend, there is a system to move through the region Saturday and will deliver some rain and snow to Colorado, but for what increasingly looks like for only isolated areas. Earlier this week we discussed this incoming system with the Insiders and mentioned: > However, if the trough should trend to be any more shallow and/or faster the total area of impact will decrease, that's the trend we are leaning toward at the moment. That trend certainly has been realized as the incomin

Friday, afternoon temperatures will range from 5 to 15 degrees warmer than average: Saturday, afternoon temperatures will range from 10 to 20 degrees warmer than average: Here are hourly

Hot Weekend Ahead, A Chance of Gusty Storms Too
Today's heat will carry into the weekend, and likely through next week as well. After a slow start to the summer heat, the upcoming period will certainly feel like mid-July across eastern Colorado. For Denver, this will equate to a long stretch of days in the low to mid 90s, likely pretty consistent each of the next seven days or so: For Colorado Springs, a similar outlook but a few degrees cooler on average: And finally, across the Northeast Plains, a lot of heat t

Well, nowhere near record heat today across the region but certainly a warm one. Denver's record high for the date is 98°F last set back in 2006 , about 10 degrees warmer than most of us will be this afternoon. Showers and storms will push through the urban corridor through mid-afternoon, before gradually pushing east this evening. Not a damaging storm threat today overall in the metro areas, but like yesterday a few areas could see some lightning

Weekend Outlook & Happy Mother's Day
The dreary weather pattern is clearing the state Friday night but that doesn't imply a dry weekend as we see another system to move through Saturday into early Sunday. While dreary, we at least saw some great moisture in spots over the last week. Seven day totals show many areas in and around Denver picking up more than 1" of liquid, with the Central Mountains, South-Central Colorado and the extreme Southeast Plains doing very well as well: Overall, temperatures do warm progressively over th

Active weather continues to be the theme for the state as we head into the second half of the week and this weekend. Most of the main activity will be across the high country through the weekend, with heavy snow for much of western Colorado. A look at the GFS shows snowfall through Sunday will be pretty good for the central mountains, as several systems fly across the state in the coming days: Across the plains the next several systems look like they will have minimal impacts.

The last several days have featured very smokey skies, at times being quite an irritant to the eyes and throat. Unfortunately we'll h

Well, we tried to get some rain this week in Denver, with about 12 hours of it "feeling" like rain on Wednesday.
