DENVER (CBS4) – We were close! But, no cigar for the record high in Denver on Saturday. The official high at DIA made it to 94 degrees. The old record was 95 set in 1942. That was also, the warmest temperature ever in Denver history. Missed it by one degree!

The big shield of cirrus clouds in the afternoon Saturday managed to slow our warming down at the peak heating time of the day. Otherwise, Denver may have broken that all time record. Grand Junction, Colorado Springs and Pueblo all broke their record high for Saturday.

Because of the heat and our continued drought we are very worried about the potential for large wildfires to develop.

Much of the state will be under a Red Flag Warning for Sunday.

Also due to the heat and light wind along the Front Range there’s an Ozone Action Day alert in effect. If you have a compromised respiratory system you will want to limit your time outside.

Looking ahead cloud cover will be on the increase later today along with the chance for a few mountain showers or storms. It’s part of a low pressure that will approach the state tomorrow into Monday.

It will cool our temperatures back to more seasonal levels and bring a threat for afternoon showers and storms, some of which could be strong to severe.
