DENVER (CBS4) – Thursday, Denver reached an official high of 100 degrees – exactly – for the first time this year. Not quite as hot downtown as we saw a high of 95. Now come a few days with a little less heat: scattered storms for Friday with a high in the low 90s; partly cloudy with isolated storms on Saturday with a seasonal high in the upper 80s.
Then as we complete the weekend the heat begins to return: partly cloudy Sunday with a high back in the low 90s; isolated storms Monday with a heating into the mid to upper 90s; isolated storms Tuesday with a high in the mid 90s; scattered storms Wednesday with a high right back into the mid 90s.
Fires continue to burn near Breckenridge but there is a bit of positive news – winds have shifted and been a bit lighter along with some cloud cover and scattered storms today. However, it will stay very warm for the next several days.
