Friday Evening, July 1st

Storms will continue on the Southeast Plains...this is where the heaviest rain will occur. Farther west, a few more showers will be possible overnight, but likely nothing significant.

More storms will be possible on Saturday, but most of them should remain confined to areas along and west of I-25. Lesser chances to the east... However, some of them will be strong with lightning, hail, and heavy rain the biggest threats.

Spotty storms will remain possible for Sunday and your Fourth of July, but they will be a lot less numerous than previous days, and mainly anchored to the higher terrain.

Drier weather finally settles in by the middle of next week and temperatures heat back up to the 90s to 100s.
