QUICK STOP. A quick shot of rain can’t be ruled out this afternoon, and some storms may become severe with high temps and spiking dew points. We look ahead to what comes after the storm and keep an eye on what’s going on at home and and outstate in today’s three things.

TAG OUT. Don’t forget that if you were not successful in the first deer firearms lottery, there’s a second chance at over 3,000 antlerless tags for this autumn. Log on to the NDG&F website for the online application. The process must be completed by Aug. 8.
MODERATION. Following a cold front due through the area on Tuesday, temperatures will moderate into the mid-70s for much of the week. While today, tomorrow and the next day will be warm, watch for a big cool down that might provide hints of fall (gulp!) in its feel before things warm back up for next weekend.
FOOTWORK. Here’s a fun story of restocking efforts in Colorado involving the greenback cutthroat trout, as hikers haul hundreds of fish up into the mountain and place them into their native streams. There, biologists hope the state fish will begin the repopulation process of its home waters.
