DENVER (CBS4) – Another hot day in Colorado! We hit 98 degrees in Denver, up three degrees from the Fourth of July. Overall, the sun has been shining statewide, but we have had a few isolated storms in the foothills and high country.
A wildfire exploded in the Breckenridge area, and thanks to that smoke we have Unhealthy Air Quality. You’ll notice it could get a bit hazy. Be careful outside if you have any respiratory issues.
Thursday will be another hot day as we move back into the mid 90s once again with increasing clouds as the day goes on. By Friday, we’ll add scattered late day storms to the forecast and it won’t be quite as hot with a high around 90. Scattered storms stay in the forecast for Saturday with a more seasonal high in the upper 80s. Isolated storms on Sunday as the high warms back into the lower 90s.
For most of next week we’ll stay hot – in the low to mid 90s – with scattered storms early in the week, drying out as the week goes on.
