We started the weekend with some beautiful weather! Highs on Friday were well into the 70s and even a few 80s. But now we have to change gears and start to prepare for some showers over the weekend.
Much of the shower activity will take place in the higher elevations. But lower elevations aren't in the clear. By noon Saturday, showers start to move into the highest elevations, then move east. This storm isn't going to be one big line, or any organized activity. It's going to be the spotty, random showers that you never know where and when they'll develop.
The heaviest rain and strongest storms will be possible through Saturday evening until shortly after midnight. Some computer models are showing that places in Teller County and North/East El Paso County could see upwards of .5" of rain. Should we get a heavy shower over these areas, flash flooding would be possible.
There's still a chance for some showers on Sunday, but the best chance is Saturday Night. Temperatures this weekend will be a few degrees cooler both days because of the showers and cloud cover.
Next week looks really nice! Temperatures in the 70s and 80s just about every day. And no rain to talk about at this time.
I hope you have a great Easter weekend... Meteorologist Valerie Abati
