On Saturday in Denver there’s a 30% chance for afternoon showers and thunderstorms and the high temperature will climb to about 91 degrees, the weather service said.

There’s a 20% chance of afternoon showers and thunderstorms in Denver on Sunday. Skies will be mostly sunny and the high should hit 93 degrees.
