DENVER (CBS4) –
Temperatures climbed to 85 degrees in Denver, kicking off our warmer weather trend for the next few days. The mid-80s will feel mild compared to our weekend temperatures.
A few thunderstorms are possible Thursday evening across the Front Range and plains, but they’ll be much more isolated than the past few days. If a storm does pop, there is a chance for it to turn severe.
As high pressure continues to build over Colorado, we’re going to dry out and warm up. Friday, we’ll head into the mid 90s! We’ll also see plenty of sunshine and dry conditions.
The record high temperature for June 9 in Denver is 95° set in 2012. We should be close!
And then even hotter weather arrives Saturday with highs reaching the upper 90s along the Front Range. The mountains will be in the 70s (valleys in the 80s) with completely dry weather in the high country as well.
Fire danger will be very high on the Western Slope Friday through Saturday. A Red Flag Warning will be in place, for low humidity and gusty winds. Be careful if you’re out and about.
Stay cool and hydrated this weekend!
