DENVER — Temperatures reached the 70s and 80s across eastern Colorado under a partly cloudy sky. It was a nice change of pace for the far eastern plains where temperatures stayed in the 50s on Tuesday.
A cold front is now moving into the state from the northwest and will bring cooler and wetter weather to Colorado Thursday and Friday. Scattered rain and snow showers will develop in the northern and central mountains tonight with lows in the 30s. Denver and the eastern plains will have overnight lows in the mid-to upper 40s.
Thursday and Friday will be cooler with a better chance for showers and thunderstorms statewide. Highs will be in the 50s to mid 60s in the mountains and upper 60s to mid-70s for Denver and the eastern plains. Some severe thunderstorms will be possible over the eastern plains each afternoon, with hail the main threat.
Saturday will also feature a good chance for showers and thunderstorms with similar temperatures expected.
Warmer and drier weather can be expected starting Sunday and continuing for early next week. High will soar well into the 80s and even low 90s!
