Recurring rounds of rumbles today.
Computer modeling (via WeatherBELL; click to enlarge) shows one batch in the morning drive hours, then a pause, then another round of rain in the mid to late afternoon. (The animation covers 5am-10pm.) You can see the blue (depicting snow) in Colorado and Wyoming.
It won’t rain all day Saturday, but there is a chance all day, adding some drama to qualifications for the “500.” There is a marginal-to-slight risk of severe weather today and Saturday.
