Smoke will leave on Wednesday as rain and thunderstorms enter the area

Residents of Denver will finally get respite from the smoke from Canada’s wildfires on Wednesday night after thunderstorms brought heavy rain to clear the air.

The thunderstorms will arrive in the afternoon after starting in the mountains on Wednesday morning and will bring heavy rain and some chance of hail and strong winds. Thunderstorms are most likely to reach Denver after 3 p.m., and smoke will leave soon after, improving Denver’s air quality.

Denver will start the day with a high of 77 degrees before the storms arrive. Morning winds are between eight and 13 mph.

Maximum rainfall of 1 to 1.5 inches in 30 minutes can be expected in the strongest storms, increasing the risk of urban flooding and flash flooding in scorched areas in the high country.

A few severe thunderstorms capable of producing 1 to 1.5 inch hail are also possible, as are wind gusts up to 50 mph.

The low temperature Wednesday evening is 51 degrees.

Stormy weather is expected to continue through at least Friday, with more than a 50% chance of thunderstorms Thursday and Friday.

Temperatures will hit 80 degrees by the weekend.
