DENVER (CBS4) – As promised, warmer and certainly drier air arrived today as we pushed into the low 70s: 72 downtown and 71 at the airport with hardly a cloud in the sky. For Friday, look for more of the same only warmer – into the upper 70s – and again with sunshine in abundance.
The warm and sunny weather continues into the weekend: Saturday’s high with reach into the low 80s, and not much change on Sunday, except for a slight chance for a late isolated thunderstorm.
We’ll start next week with scattered storms again on Monday with a high near 80. Mostly cloudy skies and somewhat cooler for Tuesday with scattered storms and a high in the low 70s. More of the same for Wednesday only more seasonal with a high in the upper 60s.
As you look at this forecast…keep in mind the average snowfall in May is 1.1″…and the highest temperature ever recorded in May was 95 degrees way back in 1942…so as we have seen somewhat this month, there can be some big weather swings in Colorado during May!
