Another warm day with a better chance for some afternoon storms

Showers and storms will be more widespread in the high country today and will likely pop up across the Front Range and Eastern Plains as well.

COLORADO, USA — FORECAST BY: Meteorologist Keely Chalmers


We made it up to 90 degrees for a high yesterday. Today will be pretty similar with a forecast high of 91. However, we are looking at a better chance for Front Range storms today compared to yesterday.

Storms will be fairly brief, but they could bring heavy rain, lightning, gusty winds, and small hail this afternoon. The main time window for any storms looks to be between about 1pm and 6pm.

For the 4th of July, temperatures will be a bit warmer and skies will be mostly sunny. Highs will reach the low 90s, with only spotty chances for an isolated afternoon and evening storm. 

We mostly dry out midweek, with mainly sunny skies and highs gradually ticking up into the 90s and only isolated storms on Wednesday and Thursday.

Saturday is shaping up to be the hottest day of the week with highs in Denver reaching about 95 degrees.
