Good morning. It looks like Denver is settling into its summer weather pattern. We have a slight chance of showers this morning, followed by a 50 percent chance of thunderstorms or showers this afternoon, according to the National Weather Service. The rain may carry into tonight.

That same pattern — storms in the afternoon — is expected to continue every day through at least Thursday. Beware of lightning.
