Scattered, slow-moving thunderstorms expected this 4th of July


DENVER — Warm weather is in store this holiday weekend for Colorado, with temperatures soaring back into the upper 80s and low 90s for lower elevations and 70s to middle 80s in the mountains.

This Fourth of July, expect scattered storms and showers, first in the mountains and foothills after noon, over the i-25 Urban Corridor mainly between 2-5 p.m. and finally moving over the eastern plains after 4 p.m.

It does look like the storms will mostly be east of I-25 and the Denver metro area before sunset tonight.

Thunderstorms, especially over the eastern plains, have the potential of producing heavy rainfall and very strong winds through this evening.

Plan on moving any outdoor activities or BBQ’s inside while these storms pass.

Temperatures will cool to the low 60s by early Sunday morning in Denver. Skies will clear out across the state. Another round of storms and showers will develop Sunday afternoon as well, but we’ll see less moisture and fewer cells form. Highs will climb back to the low 90s.

Next week will be hot and mostly dry with mid-to upper 90s for Denver and the eastern plains.
