Strong thunderstorms have been affecting eastern Colorado Thursday night. Large hail, locally heavy rain, and tornadoes will be the main concerns with the storms that form over the plains.
Over the western half of Colorado, sunshine and warm temperatures can be expected to continue. It'll be hot and dry over the Western Slope, with highs in the upper 90s in Grand Junction. Fire danger will remain the main concern over Western Colorado.
The overall weather pattern is not going to change much through the weekend. Temperatures will be warmer over eastern Colorado, but there is so much moisture in the soil, there will be scattered thunderstorms developing each day.
The weather for western Colorado will remain dry and warm through the weekend, with highs expected in the upper 70s to low 80s in the mountains and 95-100 degrees for the western valleys.
