Currently in Denver — May 23rd, 2022

The weather, currently.

Slight chance of thunderstorms and 50s for May 23rd.

There comes a time in the Front Range where we get thunderstorm season. It looks like that time is now. For the first two days of the work week, we have chances for thunderstorms. The greatest chance will be on Tuesday. Right now it looks like wind and hail won’t be a concern as much for either of those two days.

Here’s what to expect for Monday:

  1. Slight chance for thunderstorms in the afternoon.
  2. High in the 50s.
  3. Partly cloudy conditions all day.
