Warmer temperatures moving in; snowmelt at higher elevations begins

DENVER -- A more normal spring-summer weather pattern is beginning to set in with dry mornings and isolated afternoon thunderstorms.

Thursday will have warmer highs near 70 degrees along the Front Range.

The mountains start dry, then watch for isolated afternoon rain, snow and thunderstorms. Highs will be in the 40s, 50s and 60s.

The snowmelt at higher elevations kicks into high gear starting Thursday through next week. Expect rivers and streams to rise into next week.

Mountain highs warm into the 50s, 60s and 70s this weekend and into next week. Overnight lows do hit freezing, so it's mainly a daytime melt.

Saturday and Sunday start dry across the Front Range with isolated afternoon thunderstorms. Highs will reach 75 to 80 degrees.

Next week looks similar with highs 75 to 85 degrees most days and isolated afternoon thunderstorms.
