Stormier pattern sets up for Father’s Day weekend across Colorado

DENVER -- Scattered thunderstorms Friday change to widespread thunderstorms during the weekend to create some issues for outdoor plans.

Thursday evening will continue to see hit-and-miss thunderstorms across much of the state, but mostly focusing on the eastern Plains by the later evening hours. Temperatures remain quite warm, primarily in the 70s, unless rain-cooled by a nearby storm.

Friday will start off with some cloud cover, but a bit of sunshine will push temperatures into the 80s for your lunch break and the start of the afternoon. However, thunderstorms develop and spread across the state with threats of hail, lightning, wind and heavy rain.

The most likely area for damaging storms is on the southeastern Plains.

Thunderstorm chances and timelines change for Saturday and Sunday. Both days bring higher chances of storms and the thunderstorms will start earlier in the day and may linger later at night. This means you'll have to be careful in your planning for Father's Day; all outdoor activities are subject to storminess.
