DENVER (CBS4) – Hopefully you haven’t packed up the shorts and flip flops because it will be warm to almost hot in Denver on Friday thanks to a stretch of weather known as Indian summer.
According to the American Meteorological Society’s Glossary of Meteorology, Indian summer is a period of abnormally warm weather with mostly sunny but hazy days and cool nights in mid to late autumn.
Friday’s high in Denver is expected to be within a few degrees, and could potentially reach, the record high of 85°F set in 1962.
Denver’s normal high for October 14 is 66°F.
Along with the heat we should also see some gusty wind by Friday afternoon.
The warm, windy weather will keep fire danger elevated through the weekend with drought conditions in place along the Front Range.
