Last day of hot weather, cool front brings storms

Wednesday and Thursday both topped off at ninety degrees. For Fort Collins, that is about fifteen degrees above average! Friday is forecast to reach toward the ninety mark yet again (probably for the last time this year). Weak thunderstorms, however, will make a reappearance during the afternoon hours. That calls for a bit of a change in the closet planner: shorts, t-shirt, sunglasses and an umbrella. It’s been several days since anyone has needed one of those!



A weak cool front pushes through Fort Collins Friday morning; although it won’t cool temperatures much, it will bring moisture along with it. This will allow for a little more cloud cover throughout the afternoon. Small, weak storms are most likely between 4pm and 8pm. After the rain tapers off, a mild night is in store. Any activities after 9pm should be in the clear!


Saturday is the choice day for the weekend. Temperatures will be a bit more comfortable, and the daytime hours should be dry with partly sunny skies. Showers will develop around sunset and last through the night. Sunday morning will be cloudy and may see some light showers. Heavier rain is expected Sunday afternoon and evening. Rain will continue through Sunday night and into Monday morning. A cloudy, rainy day is expected as classes resume. Tuesday should be a little drier, with showers confined to the afternoon. Looking towards Wednesday and the end of next week, temperatures are expected to warm up as the weather dries out.

Have a fun and safe weekend, rams!
