Moderate amounts of atmospheric moisture and a low-level push of moist air from the east should boost the chance for afternoon/evening thunderstorms today. There will almost certainly be parts of the Front Range region that miss out, but where the thunderstorms do develop there could be some brief heavy rain and hail.
The overall pattern is still a hot and mainly dry one for the central Rockies. So after today It looks like the weekend will be mainly dry with above average temperatures. thunderstorms that do develop may produce only small areas of rain with larger areas of brief gusty winds. Temperatures exceeding 95 degrees in portions of the Front Range urban corridor are likely.
