DENVER (CBS4) –  On the weather map a strong ridge of high pressure is moving in on the central Rockies. This will bring in above normal temperatures across the state. Denver’s high on Sunday afternoon blasted up to 81 at DIA and 82 in Downtown Denver. At the same time I am watching a batch of moisture with a cold front in the Pacific northwest that will help return afternoon thunderstorms to the eastern plains.

Monday will be another hot day around the region with scattered late day storms. Some of which may be severe just east of Fort Collins and Denver out to the Nebraska and Kansas state lines. One inch diameter hail and up to 60 mph wind gusts will be the biggest threat.

The Pacific Northwest cold front will be sliding through on Tuesday increasing the chances for afternoon and evening storms across the state. With a chance for afternoon storms through mid-week locking in.

Looking ahead another ridge of high pressure settles in Thursday into Friday and may deliver the first 90 degree day for Denver this year.
