Buckrail - Mount Scenery

Yesterday’s cloud cover is clearing out and we can expect increased sunshine and warmer temperatures over the next several days as high pressure strengthens over the Rocky Mountains. Summer-like warmth will arrive by the end of the week, though we will see at least a chance of isolated thunderstorms each day through the weekend.

Wednesday:

Skies will be mostly sunny to partly cloudy with near seasonal temperatures as highs reach the upper 60s. A brief afternoon thunderstorm can’t entirely be ruled out, mainly over the higher elevations, but for the most areas will stay dry.

Thursday:

A beautiful day is expected with mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies and highs in the mid 70s. Once again, a brief afternoon thunderstorm can’t entirely be ruled out, but for the most part, Thursday is looking dry.

Friday:

Temperatures will warm up to around 80 in the valley (well above average for late May), though clouds will increase late in the day with isolated thunderstorms developing.

Saturday:

Another very warm day is expected, but clouds will also be on the increase as we shift to a southwest flow with a better chance of thunderstorms during the afternoon and evening. Only light rain is expected at this time, but storms could produce frequent cloud to ground lightning.

Sunday:

A weak cold front will move through on Saturday night, ushering in drier conditions on Sunday with slightly cooler temperatures and only a slight chance of an afternoon storm.
