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.

Windy & warm this week. Scattered showers & storms. Much cooler by Tuesday.

Good mernin and happy Saturday! I got what I wished for, and we have a lot of weather to talk about this weekend and going into next week! Let me splain:

Today, Sunday, and Monday will be characterized by warm temperatures, strong southerly blowy winds, and scattered showers & thunderstorms as southerly flow amplifies ahead of a strong trough of low pressure that will drop our temperatures significantly by Tuesday of next week.

Southerly winds of 15-25mph will be pretty widespread today with gusts up to 35mph except gusts up to 55mph will be possible with stronger showers & storms that first develop in the mountains & southern Colorado around 2-3pm this afternoon and migrate from south to north through the late afternoon and evening. A few storms may make it into Northern Colorado & SE Wyoming by sunset with lesser chances of that occurring in Nebraska panhandle.

On Sunday, we have a conditional threat of thunderstorms in the late afternoon/early evening after 4-5pm. I say conditional because a strong capping inversion will be in place preventing convection from bubbling up for most of the afternoon. I’ll have to monitor it in real time, and will keep you updated.

Expect southerly winds to continue to the tune of 15-25mph with higher gusts possible across the eastern plains.

By Monday, temperatures have trended downward. We will be near the 80 degree mark with a cold front approaching the region from the north and west. A few showers and storms will be possible along and east of I-25 on Monday afternoon into Monday night and this would include SE Wyoming and the Nebraska panhandle with a developing dry line.

Overnight Monday into Tuesday morning, a surface low is going to develop on the eastern plains which will help pull a cold front across the region with gusty winds, and rain developing along and behind the front. With dropping temperatures throughout the day, highs will likely only max out in the 60s on the front range & eastern plains with temperatures falling into the 50s the remainder of the day!

Depending on the position of the surface low, it’s possible that southern Colorado and the SE plains will get dry slotted and most of the precipitation will stay along and north of the Palmer Divide. Again, I’ll keep you posted on this as we get closer. The drama is in the details.

Overnight Tuesday into Wednesday, a lee trough will develop that should shut off precipitation east of the foothills, but temperatures will likely be cold enough to change rain to wet snur in the higher elevations of the foothills and mountains along the continental divide where accumulation will be expected going into Thursday!

After Thursday and going into next weekend, we dry out and temperatures look spectacular with mainly 60s and 70s in the lower elevations with cooler weather up in the higher elevations.

Stay tuned for more updates as we move along!

Sad news. I broke up with my girlfriend Lorraine because I was seeing another girl named Claire Lee. But the good news is that I can see Claire Lee now Lorraine is gone. 😜😜😜😜😜🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃
