Mother’s Day to offer cool, damp conditions, slight chance for severe storms

Sunday, May 13th, 2018 5:32am MST

Unfortunately, today won’t be a great day to get outside with mom. In many respects it looks similar to yesterday however with healthy cloud cover and periods of showers but we also can’t rule out the addition of severe thunderstorms.

The day starts with a pretty solid layer of cloud cover then by mid-morning we should see at some spots of blue peeking through. Temperatures start out cool then will warm toward a mid-afternoon high in the mid to upper 60s.

Light rain / drizzle may be seen to start out the morning then we should dry out for a few hours. By mid-afternoon, some convective activity will begin to occur starting in the mountains then moving off onto lower elevations. As we approach evening, the chance for thunderstorms will increase. Models are a bit all over the place as to where the strongest of these storms will set up but we can’t rule out some appearing over the metro area. There will be a chance for hail, some large, and perhaps a tornado although that possibility seems slim right now.

Thunderstorm activity will continue to be possible until midnight then taper off. Lows tonight will be around 50 degrees.

Have a great day with mom but be sure to stay weather aware, particularly in the late afternoon and evening time period. Keep an eye on the storms with our Severe Weather Briefing Page.
