Chance of afternoon thunderstorms possible Sunday, rest of the week


Pack those umbrellas for your Sunday jaunts just in case, Denverites.

A cloudy morning along the Front Range has a 50% chance of escalating to thunderstorms and rain showers this afternoon, according to the National Weather Service in Boulder.

The potential storm is forecast to hit around 2 p.m. with staying power through about 8 p.m., the weather service said.

Meteorologists predict a high of 81 degrees with light winds and a low that could dip to 59 degrees later this evening.

A chance of afternoon thunderstorms in Denver are possible throughout the rest of the week, the weather service said.

The National Weather Service issued a hazardous weather outlook for northeast and north central Colorado on Sunday.

Multiple rain showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop over these areas in the mountains by early afternoon, the National Weather Service in Boulder said. The storms are likely to move east of the mountains later in the afternoon. Isolated storms are expected North of Fort Collins to Limon.

Some of Sunday’s thunderstorms could produce one to two inches of rain in one to two hours, the weather service said. Heavier rain is possible, most likely West and South of Denver.

The weather service warned of an elevated threat of flood over recent burn areas.
