DENVER (CBS4) – It’s going to be a hot day around Colorado with plenty of sunshine and highs running several degrees above normal for this time of year.

In Denver we should top out near 95 degrees which is close to the record high of 97 degrees set on this date in 2015.

There is a very small chance for a few pop up showers or storms over the mountains and foothills and there is a slight chance for a strong to severe storm on the far eastern plains.
