Hot day with afternoon storms ahead

DENVER -- The heat and unsettled weather pattern will continue Sunday.

Highs will reach the low to mid-90s across the Denver metro area, with 70s and 80s expected in the high country.

Clouds will gradually build through midday, with another round of scattered afternoon storms possible.

The risk for large hail and damaging wind remains low, but the storms will still be capable of producing very heavy rain, minor flooding and plenty of lightning.

They will clear out overnight with lows in the 60s by Monday morning.

It will be similar Monday, with highs in the low 90s with afternoon thunderstorms. Expect a low risk of severe weather during the second half of the day.

Some drier air will start to move back into the state for the rest of the week.

This, combined with an increase of sunshine, will help temperatures soar eight to 10 degrees above average.

Highs this week will reach the mid- to upper 90s with minimal rain chances.
