Denver’s high today, June 8, is 88 degrees. The storms later today could be particularly gusty – think 45 mph winds – and should arrive in the city between 5 p.m. and 10 p.m., according to the National Weather Service.

It’s going to get hotter as the week goes on, with highs of 90 to 95 degrees by Friday. The chance of storms will be particularly strong from late Friday through Sunday evening.

By the way, have you noticed that all this precipitation starts in the mountains and move east? That’s just the way the wind blows – although, not always.
