DENVER (CBS4) – The last weekend of May 2015 will feel amazing and it will bring some of the warmest weather we’ve seen since the middle of March when Denver’s high hit 81°F.

It’s all thanks to a shift in the jet stream which is allowing a ridge of high pressure to move into the central and southern Rockies.

Most of us should stay dry this afternoon but because there is still so much moisture in the soils evaporating into the atmosphere it will combine with daytime heating and kick off a handful of scattered showers and afternoon storms.

Overall it’s going to be a great day to get out and enjoy Colorado.

Heading into Sunday a plume of upper-level moisture will move into Colorado and increase our chances for afternoon storms just a bit, but still nothing widespread and of long duration like we’ve seen in days past.

In fact there are no organized weather systems in the current 5-day forecast other than just those typical afternoon showers and storms that crop up in the mountains by noon and roll across the lower elevations by late afternoon.
