DENVER (CBS4) – After a slow climb all week, we hit the 90s again in the Denver area. We officially hit 95 degrees in Denver, tying the daily record high for June 16 set in 1906.


A cold front will move into Colorado on Saturday, bringing slightly cooler temperatures on Saturday and the chance for isolated afternoon thunderstorms. If you get a storm, expect gusty winds with most likely not a lot of rain. Storms should be very isolated. Expect the winds to kick up as that front moves through.

Sunday, we get some real relief from the heat. We’ll be down to the low 80s with plenty of sunshine, perfect Father’s Day weather. The mountains will see the 60s and 70s.

Although we’ve felt like summer with our hot temperatures, the new season doesn’t officially start until 10:24 pm on Tuesday. We’ll welcome summer with highs in the 90s.
