DENVER -- The hot temperatures of the last few days will finally be replaced with more seasonal 80s. Expect highs on Friday and through the weekend to reach the low 80s each afternoon.

Showers and a few thunderstorms are forecast each day as well. The rain is much-needed in the area. Some locations could pick up more than 1/2 inch by the end of the weekend.

Our forecast for next week is looking dry for Denver and most of the Front Range. There will be spotty showers, mainly in the mountains. Temperatures look to stay in the 80s in the metro through midweek before refreshing 70s arrive at the end of the week.
