Beware of lightning this afternoon

The high for today, June 6, is 84 degrees. The chance of scattered thunderstorms this afternoon is about 40 percent, the National Weather Service predicts.

That precipitation should start over the foothills and spread east to the plains late in the afternoon, according to NWS. The biggest danger will be frequent lightning, and we might also see hail and briefly heavy rain.

Storms will be possible throughout the rest of the week, but the weather will trend hotter and drier, NWS reports. In fact, temperatures will be high enough in the mountains to send more snowmelt surging down toward us, so be careful of that too, please.
