with the forecast i'm seeing you'll be fine anywhere, especially if you get out early. wall of justice and parts of wall of the nineties should stay dry in light rain. easter rock in boulder canyon will also work.

Its best to wait for the 24-48 hour forecast to make decisions.  I have done a ton of climbing when the forecast was not great.  Today, for example, I had a partner bail because of the weather forecast.  Right now, there is a mix of sun and clouds and pleasant temps.  Plenty of climbing could be going on right now.  If the forecast is bit sketchy, just don't do long routes.  There is a ton of climbing 5-10 minutes from your car.  

Where are you hoping to go?

Clear Creek and Eldo are a good choice with the forecast. You can get there quickly and bail quickly if necessary. It's CO, so the forecast could easily change for the better in the next day or two...

Both Clear Creek and Eldo have great climbing 5 minutes from the car.  RMNP is a little more committing.  The forecast looks pretty normal for this time of year.  40% chance of afternoon thunderstorms.  So, the first half of the day should be good to go.  Keep in mind, it could be storming in one spot and completely dry only a few miles away.  You really have to be out there to know for sure.  I know I'm climbing this weekend.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
