DENVER (CBS4) – We officially hit 99 degrees in Denver today, setting a new record high, breaking the previous record of 97 first set way back in 1875…and summer doesn’t officially arrive until 10:24PM Tuesday! So for tomorrow, Wednesday, the first official day of the summer season, we will be hot again, but the record high for June 21 is a bit warmer at 99 degrees, set in 2007, so we may only come close to the record high. We can also expect a few isolated late day storms Wednesday.

Thursday with not quite as warm, but we can still call it hot as we should reach a high right around 90 – and again with a chance for scattered storms. That should be the last hot day into next week – a cold front brings relief to the state…as a result the high on Friday should only be in the upper 70s with just isolated storms. The weekend will be rather pleasant with mild temperatures and a chance for isolated storms both Saturday and Sunday – the highs will stay in the low to mid 70s.

We’ll start next week with low 80s on Monday…and a chance for late day storms. Then back to the heat with upper 80s Tuesday…and right back into the 90s for Wednesday and Thursday as we stay mostly dry.
