COLORADO, USA — FORECAST BY: Meteorologist Laurann Robinson
FORECAST AT A GLANCE:
Cooler weather and scattered storms move into Colorado for the weekend.
Friday, storms will move in from the northwest, hitting the western slope early in the day. They'll begin pushing into the front range, eastern plains during the late afternoon, sticking around into the overnight hours.
Portions of the western slope are under a marginal risk for severe weather, with strong winds, hail, heavy downpours and lightning being the biggest threat. As the system pushes eastward, we'll see it drop some slushy snow across the higher elevations. Across the front range, eastern plains, we'll see locally heavy downpours, lightning, strong winds and the possibility for small hail.
Overnight, storms become more spotty, with lows dropping into the upper 40s.
Saturday, we'll start the day dry and partly cloudy, ahead of another round of scattered afternoon storms. None are expected to become severe, but continue to watch for flash flooding potential near burn scar areas. Afternoon highs will max out in the low 70s.
