DENVER -- Scattered storms are possible again on Friday afternoon in Colorado. Storms could be strong to severe along parts of the Front Range and on the Plains.

Denver will see partly cloudy skies with a high temperature of 86 degrees.

Clouds will build in during the afternoon as scattered storms roll off the foothills and onto the Front Range.

Scattered storms are possible in the Denver metro area and along the Interstate 25 corridor from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Parts of Denver and Fort Collins are under a marginal risk for severe storms in the afternoon.

The eastern Plains are under a slight risk and an enhanced risk on the northeast Plains.

Large hail, gusty winds, heavy rainfall and an isolated tornado can't be ruled out.

Shortly after 1 p.m., the National Weather Service issued a Tornado Watch for the following Colorado counties: Adams, Arapahoe, Cheyenne, Elbert, Kit Carson, Larimer, Lincoln, Logan, Morgan, Phillips, Sedgwick, Washington, Weld and Yuma.

Several Wyoming, Kansas and Nebraska counties are included in the watch as well. NWS said about 3.8 million people live in the affected counties. The watch lasts until 9 p.m. Friday.

High temperatures will be in the 80s on Saturday with a 30 percent chance of afternoon storms. Denver will cool to the 70s with a 60 percent chance of storms on Sunday.

Scattered storms are still possible on Monday before drier weather moves in on Tuesday.
