Will This Rain Wash Out Mother's Day?


Mother's Day will not only be rainy once more, but also significantly cooler, nearly chilly compared to the previous couple of days. The primary concern will be the chance for heavy rain with any storms. This a change from earlier in the week when Saturday looked like the better day.

More scattered storms will be possible on Monday as a front remains stalled over northeast Kansas. Off-and-on light rain chances continue with highs staying in the 60s. Much of Monday will offer dry time with partly cloudy skies before another isolated chance of showers arrives overnight into Tuesday. The extended forecast is in good shape with highs near 80° and dissipating cloud cover next Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. South wind 5 to 10 miles per hour.

But this weekend, a boundary is expected to stall over the southern half of OH, giving us numerous chances for pop up showers and storms through the extended forecast. Overnight lows remain mild in the low to mid 40's with clear skies.

Meanwhile in southern Colorado, conditions will stay warm and breezy for Saturday with highs in the 70-80s. During the first 11 days of the month, the thermometer reached 80 or higher on all but three days. This was because of an easterly wind. We are left with a mostly cloudy day. Rainfall is estimated to be between a quarter and half an inch. Mostly sunny, with a high near 88.

SUNDAY: Partly to mostly cloudy with a passing shower. Forecast models indicate the likelihood of thunderstorms for Friday. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 69.
