DENVER (CBS4) – Afternoon thunderstorms fired up in eastern Colorado, dropping up to 2 inch in diameter hail in some areas. A Tornado Warning was even in place for awhile near Flagler. Some areas got hit hard with hail. Here in Denver, we had sunny skies until around Noon…then clouds began to move in and kept our high to 85 degrees downtown, 87 officially out at the airport – which is exactly normal for this time of year and just three degrees cooler than Wednesday.
To end the week, expect a cool, gray Friday: mostly cloudy skies with scattered showers or storms and a high in the mid 70s. That will not set the stage for the holiday weekend ahead as we’re back to sunny and warmer conditions for Saturday – look for a high in the mid 80s..and Sunday the high will be even warmer – in the lower 90s – but we might see a scattered thunderstorm.
Monday should be partly cloudy with a seasonal high in the mid to upper 80s. Then the 4th of July holiday turns mostly sunny and hotter with a high into to the low 90s.
