Good morning. The high in Denver today is about 89 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.

There’s a minor chance of showers and thunderstorms after 2 p.m., starting over the higher terrain and spreading east.

Scattered storms are likely to continue through Thursday afternoon, possibly including heavy rainfall, hail and gusty winds, NWS forecasts. However, the threat of flooding is low, NWS predicts.

The Front Range is expected to dry out over the weekend.
