Here's the framework: a cold front moves through today and sinks south to the Gulf Coast. That will bring an end to our mid-May weather of the past several days. I don't see us threatening 80 degrees or any records again after today for some time (remember, the normals for this time of year are highs of 65 and lows of 45). Most all of the precip associated with this front will be well to our northeast, so I went with a 20% chance today. Much cooler weather (i.e., 20 degrees cooler) will filter in behind the front so look for highs in the 50s tomorrow as the next system organizes over the southern Rockies.

|Warm front positioned over the area and low pressure approaching Saturday will bring rain|
NOTE: We're having some difficulties with StormView Radar today. While we work on that, you can use our alternate radar to keep tabs on any rain that forms.
