TONIGHT: Isolated storms continue in the evening and become more likely to move away from the hills. Like many days this time of year, storms will begin to end over the mountains shortly after sunset, but may take until midnight or so to end over the plains.
SATURDAY: Expect an overall active day! Get out before noon for your outdoor plans… around 1-2 PM storms pop up W of I-25 and into the Pikes Peak Region. Saturday brings a better chance for more storms to move off the mountains even in the afternoon, so expect to see a few storms in the plains. Highs will be hot in the upper 80s and 90s! A few storms may be strong to severe over NE El Paso County to Denver and parts of the E Plains. The main risk will be large hail and strong wind gusts.
EXTENDED: Sunday stays warm with continued storm chances, first over the mountains and with time over eastern areas. The storms will tend to weaken as they move away from the hills as a generality. However, a very weak front moving over the Palmer Divide may help some storms hold together a bit better away from the mountains as the weekend begins.
While there is some disagreement in the pattern into earlier next week, it still looks like we’ll see a “drier” Tuesday overall although we still cant rule out a few mountain storms.
A cold front arrival on Wednesday will drop temperatures 5-10 degrees with continued storm chances for the middle of the week. Right now it looks like we’ll dry out Friday.
