It has been a very wet Memorial Day here in Southern Colorado. Pueblo and Colorado Springs got over a quarter inch of rain bringing our surplus for the month for well over an inch and a half.
The rain will be decreasing through the evening and we will be left with clear skies and temperatures in the 40s for Tuesday morning.
Tuesday will bring warmer temperatures and a solid chance at afternoon thunderstorms. With NW flow aloft, storms will start in the high country and then traverse to the lower elevations by the afternoon. Colorado Springs will see rain and thunderstorms after 1 PM and Pueblo will see thunderstorms after 3 PM.
NW flow will continue through Wednesday when we haven't another chance at afternoon storms, all of which should stay sub-severe. The chance for afternoon showers and storms stays with us through the end of the week and into the weekend in what is a more typical weather pattern for early June.
Temperatures will be rebounding nicely into the 70s and 80s and for some, the 90s, by the time we get to Friday and Saturday so some relief is in sight!
