Two more days of PM Poppers then back to June!

6-5-21: 9:30am update…Our rain window is closing.

An approaching trough from the Pacific NW will eventually take us out of the somewhat moist NE upper level flow we have been under for most of the week, sending us back to June’s typically dry and warm conditions starting on Monday.

COCORAHS rainfall reports from 6-4-21.

Despite a lot of bravado in the form of wind and thunder, yesterday’s storms failed to produce much rain in our area. Conditions will be very similar today and tomorrow with storms popping up from noon to sunset.

Latest NWS 3 day rainfall forecast…the mountains will be capturing the bulk of any rain today and tomorrow.

My forecast…

The rest of the day and Sunday…Partly cloudy with scattered storms moving from NE to SW. Wind gusts to around 20mph except higher in and around the storms as many of us experienced yesterday. Highs will peak in the upper 70s, then drop back to low 40’s overnight. I think precipitation totals through Sunday afternoon will range from 0.05-0.20 for our area and about double that for the mountains.

Monday-Friday of next week: Mostly sunny with highs in the 80’s and lows in the 40’s. There could always be a random scattered storm in the mountains.

Now that the weather is turning calm and peaceful, Shawn takes over tomorrow!

  1. Thanks so much! We try our best to give people the heads up for potentially hazardous weather…especially all of the tourists who visit our area and are not aware of how quickly our weather can change.

  2. I’ve lived in the mountains since 1974. Knowing what the weather is going to do has always been haphazard – I was caught on Mt. of the Holy Cross once in a deluge when the weather was suppose to be clear, I froze on a tubing trip on the South Platte when it was suppose to be warm, and I was trapped in a tent for two days in the Sangre de Christos when it was suppose to be clear and dry for a climb. There have been others. It’s nice to have someone knowledgeable enough to get the micro climates that make up our mountains. Thanks!
