DENVER — Showers and thunderstorms will be scattered across Colorado early tonight. A few strong thunderstorms will produce wind gusts to 50 mph, quarter sized hail, brief very heavy rain and intense lightning. The storms will diminish after midnight with partly cloudy skies by morning.
Nighttime lows will be in the upper 50s to mid-60s for lower elevations and in the 40s to low 50s in the mountains.
Thursday will start quiet and mild, but more thunderstorms will develop in the late morning in the mountains and move across the plains in the afternoon. Once again, some storms will produce strong winds and hail.
Highs will be in the upper 80s to low 90s on the plains and in the 70s to low 80s in the mountains.
Friday and Saturday will be a little hotter and drier, with fewer thunderstorms expected - although there will still be some scattered across the mountains and the I-25 Corridor. Highs will be in the 90s over eastern Colorado with upper 70s to middle 80s in the mountains.
More thunderstorms and slightly cooler weather can be expected for Sunday. Highs will drop back to the mid-80s in the Denver area.
