I was the PNF on flight air carrier X to den. We were on the quail 3 arrival into denver. We had received clearance to deviate left of course for WX or thunderstorms on the arrival. Center gave us a clearance to cross 45 mi southeast of fqf VOR at 15000 ft. We accepted the clearance. The flight became very busy as we were deviating around a thunderstorm and at the same time running the approach descent checklists. We became distraction by the bad WX and got high on our descent profile. I reported to the center controller that we would not be able to make the crossing restr and we passed 45 mi southeast of fqf VOR around 16500 ft about 1500 ft high.

Narrative: I WAS THE PNF ON FLT ACR X TO DEN. WE WERE ON THE QUAIL 3 ARR INTO DENVER. WE HAD RECEIVED CLRNC TO DEVIATE L OF COURSE FOR WX OR TSTMS ON THE ARR. CTR GAVE US A CLRNC TO CROSS 45 MI SE OF FQF VOR AT 15000 FT. WE ACCEPTED THE CLRNC. THE FLT BECAME VERY BUSY AS WE WERE DEVIATING AROUND A TSTM AND AT THE SAME TIME RUNNING THE APCH DSCNT CHKLISTS. WE BECAME DISTR BY THE BAD WX AND GOT HIGH ON OUR DSCNT PROFILE. I RPTED TO THE CTR CTLR THAT WE WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO MAKE THE XING RESTR AND WE PASSED 45 MI SE OF FQF VOR AROUND 16500 FT ABOUT 1500 FT HIGH.
