Castle Rock/ Colorado Weekend Weather Outlook May 27-29

After a week packed full of everything from hail, tornadoes, torrential rain and a peak of sunshine here and there, I’m happy to report that things look to be winding down a bit over the next few days.

The front that passed through Thursday left cooler and unsettled air in its wake. The good news is the limited heating means it is unlikely we see any severe storms this weekend, but with so much moisture left in the air we had to keep a chance of thunderstorms in the forecast for every day this weekend.

The weather will overall be calmer, but do plan on some areas getting storms mainly in the afternoon hours over the next 3 days.

  1. How about NE Colorado like the Fort Morgan Area. Please. We love your forcasts! Thank you

    1. Absolutely, I’m often going through there when storm chasing!

      Fort Morgan looks nice after today. Today is looking cool with temps struggling to hit 60 out there. Quite a few storms in the area so wouldn’t be surprised to see some rain out there this afternoon. I saw a weather station that said that area has already picked up nearly 0.60 inches or rain since midnight.
      Saturday looks dryer and warmer in the low 70’s thunderstorms are possible but at last look it was about a 20% chance so not too high.
      Sunday and Monday both with highs near 80 and thunderstorm chance again at 20% on Sunday but a higher 50% chance of storms on Monday. All in all, not a bad weekend.

      Thank you so much for following my site, I’ll make a note to keep an eye on that area! 🙂

      1. Thanks John,

        Since you mentioned storm chasing. My family’s place was one of the places that got hit by the Tornado a couple of weeks ago by Empire lake. It actually destroyed the big barn on the place my dad just sold. We go the that lake every weekend and my friends were in one of the campers where all of those got tossed and thrown in the lake. If you ever want to reference a weather station in Fort Morgan, I have a Davis instruments Station and it is online with their weather link app. It is called MOTLEY HM. It seems to be pretty accurate.

        1. Oh wow, hope everyone turned out ok. That’s my least favorite part of storm chasing, when I see the storm hit a town or folks’ houses. I have Davis Vantage Vue at my home as well (hoping to have one on my car soon.) I use software called Cumulus and it uploads onto Weather Underground and a few other places. Davis stations seem to work well for those of us who don’t want to spend thousands of dollars, I’ve had quite a good experience with them and for the most part they are quite accurate.
