Cold front brings cooler temperatures, chance for storms Sunday

DENVER -- It has been another hot Saturday in Denver with highs reaching 97 degrees this afternoon, only three away from the record for July 14 of 100 degrees set in 1878.

Big weather changes will arrive in Colorado on Sunday as a cold front moves through the state.

Scattered storms will move onto the Front Range from the mountains anytime after noon Sunday. Storms will be widespread and could contain heavy rain, lightning, hail and gusty winds. The areas on the map below in green (including Denver) are under a marginal risk for severe storms.

Storms will clear around midnight on the Front Range.

Storm chances will go down to a 20-percent chance on Monday with high temperatures staying in the mid 80s. Some isolated showers and storms can't be ruled out, but most areas will stay dry.

Temperatures will once again be in the 80s on Tuesday with a 30-percent chance of afternoon thunderstorms.

Drier weather moves in on Wednesday and Thursday with highs returning to the 90s.
