DENVER (CBS4) – After upper 80s and even a 90 degree reading last week, the start of this week turned out to be totally different: the high was only 68 degrees – actually below normal – and severe storms pounded the eastern plains. Heavy rains, gusty winds, abundant lightning, damaging hail, funnel clouds and even a tornado!
Everything calms down for Tuesday: look for sunshine and a mild high in the lower 70s. Wednesday another cold front pushes through the state and that will bring another round of thunderstorms – probably not as widespread but a few could reach severe levels out on the eastern plains once again. Look for a high in Denver only in the low 60s.
Then Thursday, it’s back to sunshine with a high in the mid 60s. Sunshine and lower 70s will be a nice end to the work week for Friday. It should be a near-perfect weekend: mostly sunny skies with highs in the mid 70s for both Saturday and Sunday.
