DENVER — It's going to be another dry start to the day, but thunderstorms are possible this afternoon and we'll see a chance of storms through the weekend!

The biggest risk with these storm will be large hail and damaging winds. There will also be a slight risk of isolated tornadoes closer to the Kansas and Nebraska borders.

The recent moisture has been a huge benefit for Denver, the Front Range and the eastern plains. At Denver International Airport, the total precipitation since Jan. 1 is at just over 8 inches — about the same amount as in all of 2020! We are now about 4 inches above normal when it comes to precipitation for this time of year.

Temperature wise, the overall pattern is pretty mild. We'll see highs in the upper 60s to low 70s through the weekend, with 50s and low 60s in the mountains.

We will see an even better chance for showers on Sunday into the first of next week, with slightly cooler temperatures. Mid- to upper 60s on both Monday and Tuesday.
