DENVER (CBS4) –
We are heading into a much drier and warmer weather pattern heading into Memorial Day weekend. Highs on Thursday were just a few degrees warmer than the low 80s we saw on Wednesday.
Heading into Friday, our temperatures climb to the upper 80s with sunshine state wide. Friday should be dry state wide.
This holiday weekend will overall be quite warm! Uur warmest day so far this year should occur on Saturday with highs in the lower 90s. We most likely won’t break the daily record high of 95, but we’ll be awfully close. A few degrees cooler, but still very sunny on Sunday.
The weather pattern changes late on Sunday, with maybe a chance for a few thunderstorms for the mountains. Then a chance for afternoon and evening thunderstorms will reach Denver and the Front Range for Memorial Day on Monday. Right now the chance looks no higher than 30%.
Planning to spend time in the mountains this weekend? Here’s the forecast for Summit County and the I-70 mountain corridor…
For the Front Range, watch for a few thunderstorms on Monday. If you’re going to be out and about this weekend outside, stay hydrated and bring lots of sunscreen.
