weather in late May, early June

Hey Guys
My wife are I are in the pre-stages of planning a road trip to the San Juan mountain area in late May and early June 2014
We both want to do some easy wheeling around the area with a stock 14 JKU.
Any suggestions on the weather during that time?
Any suggestions on some of the driving roads or trails in the area?
Any help would be welcome.

Most likely sunny and warm, but it is Colorado in the mountains so snow is always possible. I would follow the weather throughout the winter and you'll see if it's weak or strong down there. That will def give you a better idea.

The roads should be open by mid June. Here's a link to check closer to the time you want to visit. I know the road crew is short handed and the county is short of funds, so the Jeep roads may not be plowed/maintained as in years past.

Keep an eye out on this winters snowfall. The high mountains in the San Juans can get 15 to 20 feet and there could still be from no snow at 7 thousand ft. elevation to 5 feet on the ground at 10 thousand ft. elevation at the memorial day weekend. The high passes Jeep Trails may not be opened up till nearly the later part of June. I have ran into that situation in our central mountains northeast of the San Juans. The highways and county roads for the most part should all be open but in rough condition after the winter as the maintenance does not really start until June. Weather is still unsettled in May and June and can be everything from rain and snow with temps at 35 to 50 degrees to bright sunny and temps up to 75 or better. There are some of the best 4wd trails in the US that the San Juans offer up if you are not a bit early getting here and the snow is still around. There are also some great posts on the JK forum of folks who posted great pics and stories of their trips in the San Juans. A search should bring them up on the forum. Hope you have a great time out here.

Thanks for all the help. Looks like I'll be out there mid June early July. Either way I'll keep a close eye on snowfall for that area.

You guys should be able to hit most all of the trails by late June. We have been going there every year for the last 5 years and we are planning on being in that area around the first of July this year. The scenery, Jeep trails and towns of Durango, Silverton and Ouray have a lot to offer and plenty to see and do.
