Memorial Day will be mostly sunny in the morning but clouds will gather in the afternoon and some thunderstorms and rain showers are expected.
There’s a 30 percentage chance of rain and thunderstorms, mostly between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m., according to the National Weather Service in Boulder. The chance for thunderstorms will increase at night. Wind gusts of up to 25 mph are possible.
The high temperature will be around 74 degrees on Memorial Day in Denver.
It will be quite a different story in the mountains, where there is a chance of heavy snow on Monday, the NWS says.
“A strong late spring storm will bring some other round of possibly heavy snow to the north central mountains of Colorado north of Interstate 70,” a Monday NWS bulletin says.
Between 8 and 16 inches of snow could fall through Tuesday night, the weather service says. A winter storm watch is in place for the north central mountains.
