DENVER (CBS4) – Happy Father’s Day!
The comfortable summer weather will hang in for Monday until a big high pressure ridge begins to take over on Tuesday. Just in time for the Summer Solstice which arrives at 10:24 pm on Tuesday. This ridge will be bringing in the hottest temperatures of the year so far for Colorado. Denver will be just shy of the record high on Tuesday which is 97 degrees set in 2007.
There is already a Heat Advisory in place for parts of western Colorado. Specifically, the Grand Junction and the Grand Valley into Moab. Starting noon Tuesday through 10pm Thursday high temperatures may zoom from 100 degrees to 110 degrees in the week ahead.
The heat wave should weaken by the end of the week.
