Another round of afternoon storms possible

By the afternoon, highs will be a tad cooler today, only reaching into the low-to-mid 80s. However, the daytime heating will fire off another round of storms. The Front Range and adjacent plains have the best chance for seeing potentially stronger to severe storms, with hail and heavy rain as the main threats.

It looks like 2 - 3 p.m. will be the best timing on the redevelopment of these storms.

Tonight, the storm activity will die out, and we will be left with partly cloudy conditions. As we move into Friday, there is still a chance for showers and storms, although the threat for severe weather is slightly less. Overall, I would bet on a few pop-up afternoon storms to develop in the likely spots, the Front Range and the plains.

It really isn't until the Fourth of July holiday that we quiet down a bit. Highs will be back up to near 90 degrees and we will see mostly dry conditions as a ridge of high pressure builds in to the region. The weather looks to be rather perfect for fireworks that night as temperatures still sit in the upper 70s to low 80s by dusk.

There will be a new surge of moisture arriving in Colorado late Sunday with a better chance for showers and thunderstorms in the late afternoon.  Monday will be a busy weather day with more clouds and plenty of showers and thunderstorms.

By the middle of next week, the weather will heat up and dry out once again.
