DENVER (CBS4) – A bit of drying in the Denver area kept most of the storms from coming our way. There is still a chance a few could roll through on Tuesday evening, but so far we haven’t had much more than a few clouds. Temperatures today once again hit the upper 90s, we had 96 officially at DIA.
Wednesday, we’ll get a slight break in the heat. Highs will drop to the upper 80s. By no means is this cool, but it’s better than the upper 90s. We’ll still have the chance for afternoon thunderstorms as we are tapping into moisture from the Gulf of Mexico thanks to the monsoonal wind shift.
Rain could be heavy with these storms over the next few days, they’ll also bring a bit of lightning. The heavier rain is great for wildfires burning in Colorado.
We’ll have the chance for storms every afternoon through Friday. Then, the area of high pressure over Colorado shifts just a bit and cuts off that flow. The weekend looks hot and sunny, with highs back in the low 90s.
