Aspen forecast: more rain

Aspen Times Staff Report
Aspen, CO Colorado

ASPEN – Aspenites haven’t seen a lot of the sun lately, and it looks like the rainy season will continue this weekend.

Afternoon rains don’t typically occur until late June or early July, leaving Aspen with plenty of bluebird days in early summer, but not this year. It has rained virtually daily – a pattern that appears destined to continue through the weekend, according to the National Weather Service. Temperatures will remain on the cool side.

Friday’s forecast calls for thunderstorms in the afternoon with highs of 55 to 65 and a 40 percent chance of thunderstorms. There’s a 50 percent chance of precipitation Friday night.

On Saturday, the weather service is predicting partly sunny skies in the morning and a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon, again with highs of 55 to 65. Mostly cloudy skies and a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms are predicted Saturday night.

Sunday’s forecast calls for partly sunny skies in the morning, with clouds moving in and a 50 chance of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon. Highs in the 50s are expected. A slight chance of thunderstorms and snow showers are possible Sunday night, according to the weather service.

Monday and Tuesday will bring a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms and highs in the 50s.
