Currently in Denver — June 23rd, 2022

80s and p.m. thunderstorm chance for Thursday, June 23rd

The weather, currently.

I feel like a broken record, but I feel like it needs to be said: we need as much moisture as we can get! We see a high chance of thunderstorms and showers coming from the mountain regions and Castle Rock area and a very low (but not impossible) chance for the rest of the Denver-Metro.

Here’s a quick look at your Thursday forecast:

  1. Highs in the upper 80s.
  2. Partly cloudy conditions
  3. Thunderstorms and rain chances in the late afternoon to evening hours.
