DENVER (CBS4) – The summer season is winding down, but the heat is still very much on! We broke a daily record high here today by hitting 92 degrees! The old daily record high was 89 from 2015. We still have plenty of wind as well, meaning fire danger is extremely high. Red Flag Warnings are in place for the eastern plains through 7:00 pm and the western side of the state is under a Wind Advisory through 9:00 pm.

Fall officially arrives Friday at 2:02 pm. We’ll still be warm on Friday with highs in the mid 80s with sunshine. Late in the day, there is a slight chance for storms.

But the real cool down comes on Saturday when temperatures drop to the 60s! We also have a pretty good chance for rain this weekend, with the mountains potentially picking up some snow!

We are even colder on Sunday and Monday with highs only in the 50s! There is still a decent chance for storms on Sunday and Monday. We bounce back a bit by the middle of next week but we won’t be seeing record breaking temperatures for a little bit.
