DENVER — After a stunning start to your Wednesday, scattered thunderstorms move in for the rest of the evening around the Denver metro area.

As the storms track east, they could turn severe along the far Eastern Plains. Keep your eyes to the sky — the biggest threats will be for hail and damaging wind gusts.

Meanwhile, look for scattered rain and snow showers across Colorado's high country. It doesn't look like much snow but 1 to 3 inches could stack up above 10,000 feet. There are no travel alerts in place, but be prepared for winter driving conditions on the mountain passes!

This storm system clear out fast. Denver will be back in business with the sunshine early Thursday morning but daytime highs will be a bit cooler in the upper 50s and lower 60s. While temperatures will be warmer Friday in the upper 60s, another system races in bringing a round of afternoon and evening storms.

It'll be a beautiful, breezy and warm weekend ahead. Look for highs in the upper 60s Saturday and upper 70s Sunday. Another storm dives into the state early next week, dropping temperatures and kicking up the winds.

Mild weather Wednesday with showers and storms arriving by the evening
