Hazy skies cover much of Colorado as some of the smoke from wildfires in Arizona drift into the state. There is also a little bit of moisture in the mid-levels of the atmosphere - about 15-20 thousand feet above the ground.

Isolated gusty thunderstorms popped up over the mountains by early afternoon Wednesday and moved slowly onto the plains. These storms have produced wind and lightning, but only a few light showers - more trouble than they were worth! The gusty storms will die away and skies will be partly cloudy overnight.

Thursday will be warm and dry across the state with highs 75 to 80 degrees for Denver and across the plains and in the lower 60s in the mountains.

On Friday, a cold front will move across Colorado. Some scattered showers may develop and winds will increase as the front through the region. Winds should not be nearly as extreme as last Friday — good news. Highs will be in the low 60s, with 50s by the start of Friday night's Rockies game.

The weekend will be pretty mild with highs in the 60s across the plains. We'll see sunshine in the mountains on Saturday, with a few scattered rain and snow showers on Sunday.

Monday will be mild with highs in the upper 60s to low 70s under a mostly sunny sky. Tuesday and Wednesday will stay mainly dry although there may be some rain and snow showers in the mountains Tuesday afternoon and evening.
