DENVER (CBS4) – If you were out and about on Monday you know the summer season continues at full strength: Monday’s high reached 90 degrees at both locations, downtown and at the airport. That was closer to the record high of 96 than it was tot eh normal high for this time of year – 77 degrees! For Tuesday we’ll be warm again, but moisture from Hurricane “Paine” will sweep up from Baja California over Arizona and into Colorado. Denver should see anymore than increasing clouds but the southern half of the state could see scattered showers and thunderstorms. Denver’s high will once again reach near 90 degrees.
Now we’ll begin a gradual cool-down: partly cloudy with a high in the mid 80s on Wednesday; we’ll add a chance for an isolated storm on Thursday with a cooler high in the lower 80s; more seasonal Friday with a high of 76 and again, a chance for an isolated storm. We’ll start the weekend with a cooler high of 70 degrees Saturday, keeping that chance for an isolated storm in the forecast.
