Hot, dry Saturday before cold front arrives Sunday

DENVER -- Saturday will be dry and hot with temperatures in the low to mid 90s in metro Denver.

Cooler temperatures in the 80s will follow. However, the cool-down comes with scattered storms.  A cold front slides across northeast Colorado and Denver on Sunday.

Showers and thunderstorms are likely on Sunday, with some storms containing gusty wind, hail and brief heavy rain.  More storms will follow on Monday and Tuesday afternoon with substantial rain expected from some of the showers.  The moisture is certainly needed given how dry and hot July has been.

Those dry, hot conditions will return on Wednesday and last into next weekend with another sting of 90-plus degree temperatures.
