DENVER -- There is a chance for some much-needed rain on Tuesday night evening across metro Denver.

Scattered thunderstorms will move east from the mountains to the eastern Plains through the evening.

The timing for storms along the Front Range and up and down the Interstate 25 corridor is until about 7 p.m.

The storms will linger until around midnight on the far eastern Plains. Some of the storms could be strong to severe with gusty wind, lightning and hail the main threat.

It will turn hot and dry again starting Wednesday and lasting through Friday.  Afternoon highs will reach the mid to upper 90s.

The hottest day will be on Thursday at near 100 degrees in some communities. However, the record high is 101 from 2005 and it doesn't appear it will get that hot.

More showers and thunderstorms return over the weekend. The storms will be scattered each afternoon on Saturday and Sunday.

More widespread showers look to arrive early next week.
