Denver weather: Get ready for a third day of triple-digit heat

Denver is looking at yet another record-breaking hot day on Thursday. The city set the daily temperature high mark on Wednesday and is looking at a triple-digit high once more.

According to the National Weather Service in Boulder, Denver will reach 102 degrees Thursday under sunny skies. There’s a 20% chance of showers later in the afternoon, with isolated thunderstorms expected to develop over the high terrain.

Winds could gust near 15 mph as the temperature dips to 65 degrees overnight. Much of the metro area remains in poor air quality due to wildfires.

A Friday cool front will end the century mark heat, dropping the high to 92 degrees on Friday under mostly sunny skies. There should be some scattered afternoon thunderstorms in the high country with only isolated late-day storms on the plains. Short spurts of heavy rain, gusty winds, and hail are possible. The low will be 64 degrees.

Saturday and Sunday will have highs in the low 90s with a chance for late afternoon showers. Saturday’s low will be in the 60s, but a cool front will move in later in the day Sunday, dropping overnight temperature into the 50s and cooling Monday’s summer solstice into the 70s.
