DENVER -- We are tracking a cooler weather pattern that will also include the return of rain and snow in some areas.

On Thursday evening, expect only an isolated, gusty thundershower. Most places will not see rain Thursday night.

On Friday, temperatures will cool into the low 70s with scattered afternoon thunderstorms.  Some of those storms in extreme northeast Colorado may be severe with strong wind and hail possible.

By the weekend, temperatures will cool into the 60s both Saturday and Sunday. There will be a few late-day showers or a thunderstorm on Saturday.

Sunday is looking dry in most places with only a stray shower possible north of Denver.

The best days for rain will be on Monday and Tuesday, specially Monday night and early Tuesday. We could see between 1/2 and 1 inch of rain. It will be noticeably cooler with readings in the 40s and 50s.

Also, while it will be rain at lower elevations, it will be snowing in the mountains with up to a foot possible in spots. We are watching the rain/snow line to see if we could see some snow close to the city. However, for right now, we are forecasting just rain.
