Summer arrives with stormy skies, cool temperatures

DENVER -- A few showers and thunderstorms will be possible across metro Denver Thursday evening. Some of the storms may contain gusty wind. There is a better chance for stronger storms with wind and hail across extreme northeast Colorado. Those storms should diminish by around 10 p.m.

On Friday, the chance for showers and thunderstorms grows across Denver and the Front Range as summer arrives at 9:54 a.m. Clouds will quickly increase after some morning sunshine. Thunderstorms will develop as early as the lunch hour. Also, scattered storms will be possible well into the evening. It is possible that some of the storms on Friday could reach severe limits. So, be prepared for lightning, gusty wind and hail.

The weekend is looking soggy, with showers likely both Saturday and Sunday along with a few thunderstorms. Severe weather is not a threat over the weekend as temperatures will be in the cool 60s. Additionally, while it will be raining around Denver, snow will be possible above 9,000 feet in the Colorado mountains.

The cool weather moves out on Monday as a dome of high pressure looks to take over our weather pattern. So, get ready for mainly dry days all next week along with much warmer 80s and even 90s... summer looks to kick in!
