Tonight: Any lingering storms will continue sliding toward the south, ending after midnight. Skies will gradually clear through early Saturday morning, with lows dropping into the 50s for most.
Independence Day: Happy 4th of July! It will be a great and summery start to the day, with plenty of sunshine and temperatures quickly warming into the 80s and 90s. Around noon, storms will begin popping up in the mountains. Isolated storms will slide along I25 during the afternoon and evening before coming to an end shortly after the sun sets. Storms will be capable of becoming strong to severe, with large hail and gusty winds looking to be the primary threats. Storms should wind down just in time for any 4th of July Fireworks displays. Keep in mind, the ground will be wet after the afternoon/evening storms! Bring a tarp to put beneath your blanket if you'll be watching the fireworks from any grassy areas.
Extended: Storms will still be possible this weekend, but they should be more isolated this weekend. The monsoon will make an early arrival in Colorado for the start of the next work week, kicking up storm chances and dropping temperatures back into the 70s and 80s.
