 DENVER (CBS) - The heat continues across Colorado, and we’re going to stay on the toasty side through Saturday. We’ll top in the upper 90s across the Front Range and plains today. Lots of sunshine through the morning and early afternoon, so don’t forget the water bottle and sunscreen today. If you have pets, try to take the dogs for a walk in the morning hours. It gets too hot for them in the afternoon. The monsoonal flow is in full swing, so we do see a chance for afternoon showers and thunderstorms. We’re not looking at sever weather, but there could be gusty winds and heavy rain with any storms.

Better chances for widespread rain tomorrow, and the hot temperatures continue. Rainy weather possible again on Friday, but we do get a break on Saturday. We’re looking at a hot and dry day for Saturday. If you’re looking forward to cooler weather, relief starts on Sunday when we drop to the 80s. We start a cooler trend that will stick around through the next week. We also see a better chance for rain on Sunday.
