TODAY'S DENVER & FRONT RANGE COLORADO WEATHER FORECAST

QUICK NOTE — Denver and front range weather can get a bit spicy–be prepared for whatever’s coming our way by bookmarking this page and checking back daily. 

This is not your typical Denver weather forecast page that you can get from your local news channel. I’m not going to tell you if it’s mostly cloudy or partly sunny. That’s kind of boring. 

Instead, I share the factors that impact different weather scenarios so you know exactly what’s going on and what to expect. From thunderstorms to crazy winds to random snow storms, I serve up frequent updates on current conditions in real time with a side of sass. Think of it as your Denver and Front Range weather forecast and daily entertainment rolled into one. #yourewelcome

I am Kody Wilson, a 2012 graduate of the University of Northern Colorado (GO BEARS!). I have a Bachelor of Science with an emphasis in Meteorology. I started independently forecasting the weather in the Denver and Front Range area of Colorado in May of 2017 to share my love and passion for the weather with the general public. Weather forecasting is a fascinatingly complicated endeavor to uphold in the state of Colorado. Through education, engagement, and a little humor, I like making the process of learning and understanding Colorado climatology fun and informative.

May 28th, 2024

Busy week of weather begins today with scattered storms.

Mernin. Happy Tuesday to my early risers, night owls, insomniacs, and neuro spicy besties. Special anti-shoutout to everyone I haven’t offended yet. Just be patient, it’ll probably happen soon enough.

The graphic is pretty self explanatory.

We’re back into a weather pattern that supports daily scattered showers and thunderstorms.

Temperatures will fluctuate between the 70s and 80s at lower elevations throughout the week, and obviously cooler with elevation up in the mountains.

Scattered to numerous showers and storms in the mountains today, but they should be under severe criteria. Heavy rain, small hail, and lightning all expected.

For I-25, the eastern plains, SE Wyoming, and western Nebrasky pandyhandle, should start seeing storms fire up after 1-2pm. Similarly for the mountains.

SE upslope flow is providing the moisture and the trigger we need for showers and storms to form; however storms will behave erratically today, and several clusters of storms could linger well into the nighttime hours, especially east of I-25 on the eastern plains.

Wednesday: More synoptic scale forcing and increased Southwest flow over the mountains will help contribute more forcing, and instability as a pseudo dry-line forms along the front range. (Boundary that separates drier air coming off the mountains from more humid and denser air on the eastern plains). The clash of these air masses along the dry line is usually a focus for strong to severe thunderstorms.

I’ll park the update there for meow, and will continue to push out more information in future updates; so please be patient and vigilant you anxiety ridden cucumbers.

Making new friends is hard these days because as a neuro spicy adult, I feel like the other adults I would get along best with are the ones that don’t like to leave their house. Amirite? 😆😆😆😆😆😆
