Good morning. Patchy fog and rain showers will hang over the plains this morning, followed by the possibility of severe thunderstorms with large hail and damaging winds in the Denver metro this afternoon. Periods of heavy rain could again flood low-lying areas and urban streets, as National Weather Service predicts.

The greatest potential for storms will be along Denver’s eastern and southern sections after about 3 p.m. The high today is 66 degrees.

Wednesday may bring more isolated thunderstorms.
