The cooler weather won’t last long with temperatures warming back up starting on Wednesday. The normal high in Denver right now is about 90 degrees, but some really hot air will move into the state on Thursday and Friday with highs on both days predicted to be around 100 degrees in Denver.

Upcoming Record Highs For Denver

Thursday – 103° on July 8, 1989
Friday – 98° on July 9, 1989

Right now we think we’ll miss Thursday’s record high by just a few degrees but it is possible that we’ll either tie or set a new record high on Friday. In addition to being very hot our thunderstorm chances will be near zero on Thursday and rather low until late in the evening on Friday.
