Storm Tracker 5 Forecast Discussion

Forecast as of 7:30 PM, Sunday, May 3rd

Tonight: Cloudy, rainy, and mild overnight tonight. Temperatures won't fall too much across the region as we'll see a nice blanket of clouds keeping us rather warm. Lows will only be in the 40s overnight tonight. We will however, continue to see the chance for some scattered rain showers overnight, and maybe even a stray thunderstorm. Winds will continue to blow from the east, bringing in good upsloping winds, which could give us some areas of patchy fog overnight tonight.

Monday: It's going to be a soggy start to the week on Monday. A stationary front will still be draped across the Front Range, which will continue to bring in clouds, showers, and some cooler temperatures. Highs tomorrow won't warm up to much from the lows Sunday night, only reaching the mid to upper 50s across much the area. Showers will be off and on throughout much of the day, with a few thunderstorms being possible in the afternoon as winds remain out of the east and southeast at 5-10 MPH. Overnight, chances for a few showers and thunderstorms will linger, with mild overnight lows in the 40s again.

Tuesday: Not a lot changes on Tuesday as the stationary front slides back to the north as a warm front. Temperatures might be a degree or two warmer during the afternoon, into the upper 50s and lower 60s. Otherwise, we'll see mostly cloudy skies with off and on showers throughout the day. If we see any clearing of the clouds, we might get enough surface heating to spark off a few strong to severe storms during the afternoon. Overnight, temperatures again remain mild under cloudy skies with scattered overnight showers.

Wednesday: The soggy week continues on Wednesday as again, nothing really changes. Temperatures warm a degree or two higher than Tuesday, but we'll see showers and thunderstorms throughout the day, under overcast skies. Overnight, cloudy and mild with a low near 40° in Cheyenne.
