DENVER -- The hit-and-miss, somewhat roller-coaster weather pattern continues.

Friday evening is no exception. Parts of northern Colorado will see storms and rain showers through the evening and early morning.

During the weekend, be watchful for thunderstorms Saturday, which carries the higher rain chance of the two weekend days and may be the day to adjust your plans to avoid the afternoon and early evening activities outdoors.

If you'll be hiking, definitely take note and start your hikes much earlier to avoid the chances of storms in the mountains during the mid-morning through the afternoon.

Sunday may have a storm or two but overall, it will be a drier day versus Saturday.

Temperature-wise, low 90s and upper 80s are expected Saturday and Sunday.

During next week, the hit-and-miss variety of thunderstorms continue. Highs are likely into the 90s during the week.

July is likely to close out with these hit-and-miss generic thunderstorm days.

As we head into August, particularly the second week of August, the seasonal wind flow called the monsoon may bring moisture across Colorado. If this pans out, we will see much more widespread and higher thunderstorm chances daily.

The monsoon is a seasonal wind flow responsible for increasing rainfall coverage for the second half of summer. This will need to pan out or we'll see the drought numbers climb steadily. Speaking of which, abnormally dry conditions are now showing up in the latest drought monitor:
