Monsoon moisture is finally moving into the Rockies from the south. This increase in moisture will bring a better chance for showers and thunderstorms, especially in the mountains and western valleys for the next few days.
Most of the storms will be moderate in strength with a low risk of severe weather. The stronger cells will briefly produce some heavy rain, intense lightning, gusty winds and hail up to the size of a marble.
Temperatures will be cooler due to the cloud cover, with readings falling from the 90s at lower elevations and dipping into the upper 60s to low 70s in the mountains through mid-week.
Thursday and Friday will be a little warmer and drier again as the monsoon flow tapers off slightly. Highs will return to around 90 degrees on Friday.
A cold front will slide across the state on Saturday, increasing the rain chances and dropping temperatures. Highs this weekend will stay in the 70s to lower 80s for Denver and the plains and be in the 60s for the northern and central mountains. Western Colorado will be hotter and drier again.
