DENVER --Gusty winds are possible overnight into Saturday morning, especially in west metro Denver areas. Additional storms are possible during the weekend as temperatures climb back into the 90s.

Microburst-like winds hit the west side of metro Denver Friday night:

  • 8 p.m.: 64 mph NCAR Mesa Lab in Boulder
  • 8:23 p.m.: 67 mph Gold Hill
  • 8:26 p.m.: 62 mph Rocky Flats

A gust of 70 mph was recorded in the north Lakewood/Applewood area where power outages were reported after 9 p.m. Friday. Lakewood police said some tree limbs went into some power lines. The department had not heard any reports of other damage or injuries.

Rain showers moved  across the northern half of Colorado Friday afternoon. Moderate to heavy rain was found in a few small sections of the activity.

The showers -- mostly just rain, very little lightning has occurred - are moving slowly east and will grow into stronger storms by the evening for those on the far eastern Plains.

Saturday and Sunday will be similar days. Following this rain, the sky clears Saturday morning, although there will still be smoky skies in many places.

Sunshine and only isolated storms in the afternoon and evening will allow temperatures to sit in the lower and middle 90s for the weekend.

In the mountains, high temperatures will be in the 70s and 80s with isolated storms Saturday.

Early next week, we have another possible cool-down with some rain and thunder. Monday and Tuesday likely will cool into the 80s, when we will have the next best chance for thunderstorms.
