DENVER -- Shortly after 6 p.m. Wednesday, a cold front arrived and pushed through the metro area, dropping temperatures by 15 degrees near Fort Collins.

In Denver, winds gusting to more than 30 mph in some cases spread colder air in from the north.

Denver's temperatures Wednesday night will drop into the middle 40s, making for a chilly Thursday morning.

A few showers and thunderstorms popped up as a result and the chance of thunderstorms and rain will continue through the night, although the impact is only for a few as the storms are very isolated.

The rain chances are the first of a few weather changes for the week ahead. The biggest impact comes this weekend and early next week.
