Quiet start to summer, but storms will return Friday

Pleasant weather in the Denver area

DENVER — Summer officially started at 4:07 a.m. today and it was a great beginning with mostly sunny skies and highs in the mid- 80s on the plains and 70s in the mountains.

Isolated gusty thunderstorms will be possible through the evening with clear skies overnight. Lows will drop to the mid-50s in Denver, with 40s in the mountains.

Friday will be sunny in the morning, but a better chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon especially east of I-25.  Severe thunderstorms will be likely Friday afternoon over the eastern quarter of Colorado.

Saturday will be the pick day of the weekend with mostly sunny skies and warm temperatures.  A few thunderstorms will be possible late on Saturday as a new weather disturbance begins to move into the central Rockies. Highs will be in the mid- to upper 80s on the plains and 70s in the mountains.

Thunderstorms will become likely again — possibly severe — Sunday with cooler temperatures in the upper 70s to low 80s.  Large hail, damaging winds and isolated tornadoes will be possible on Sunday.

More severe weather will be possible Monday with high temperatures in Denver around 80 degrees.

Tuesday and Wednesday of next week will turn hot and dry across the state.
