DENVER (CBS4) – Wednesday saw slightly cooler across parts of the state and while Denver was seven degrees cooler than Tuesday, we still reached 90 degrees – still 3 degrees above normal for this time of year. The high reached 88 downtown. Scattered storms were found over the eastern plains once again and we will find them there again tomorrow. Thursday will also be slightly cooler as we look for a high in the low 80s. Scattered storms again Friday and noticeably cooler as we look for a high only in the mid 70s.
The holiday weekend will begin with a mostly sunny Saturday and a warmer high in the mid 80s. Partly cloudy for your Sunday as we reach around 90 degrees. Monday will be a holiday for some – look for a high in the low 90s under mostly sunny skies. Then the Tuesday holiday for just about everyone – Independence Day – will be mostly sunny and hot with a high in the low to mid 90s.
Meanwhile on the western slope, high fire danger continues. Red Flag Warnings are once again in place for Thursday.
