DENVER (CBS4) –
The 90 degree heat finally took a break today in Denver. Although it was still warm, we only made it to the mid 80s. There is a chance for storms through the evening, but should be okay for the second half of the Broncos preseason game against the Cardinals.
The “cooler” weather is thanks to an increase in cloud cover as well as a somewhat better chance for showers and thunderstorms along the Front Range during the afternoon and evening. If you do get for a storm, watch for heavy rain but the storms shouldn’t be severe.
Friday brings an isolated chance for rain during the early afternoon, but it should be dry for the Rocky Mountain Showdown between CU and CSU at Mile High Friday evening.
The holiday weekend looks hot. Lots of sunshine and heat, make sure you’re loaded up on water and sunscreen if you plan on being outside. On Sunday (September 3), the record high in Denver is 95° set in 1995. So obviously that record is in jeopardy.
