DENVER -- There will be a few scattered showers and storms across the Front Range and foothills during the Wednesday evening drive.

Storms that do develop are expected to be weak with gusty wind being the main threat.

Skies will clear overnight with dry conditions to start off Thursday.

Thursday will be another hot day with high temperatures reaching the low 90s. The heat will help fuel scattered afternoon storms.

Similar to Wednesday, not everyone will see rainfall because of the hit-and-miss nature of the storms. They are not expected to turn severe.

Wetter conditions move in on Friday and through the weekend, bringing much-needed relief to the high fire danger in Colorado.

Storm chances will be highest on Friday but will still be scattered on Saturday and Sunday afternoons.

Increased rain chances will cool temperatures into the low 80s through the weekend.

Next week looks drier with seasonal temperatures.
