Denver will push into the 90s for the 13th time in June, with a chance to hit 100 on Wednesday. A cool down and storms are coming, making for a much different weekend than the weather pattern we’ve seen lately.
Denver will be mostly sunny and hot on Wednesday, with a forecasted high of 97 degrees, according to the National Weather Service in Boulder.
Clouds will increase into the evening, bringing 15-mph wind gusts and a low of 65 degrees to the metro.
The hot, dry and windy conditions will create critical fire danger across parts of the state Wednesday afternoon.
Denver will reach 87 degrees Thursday with a 50% chance for a thunderstorm between 1 p.m. and midnight. The low will be 59 degrees, with winds picking up to 18 mph overnight. NWS warns one or two strong to severe storms are possible across far northeast Colorado. Brief heavy rain along the foothills may occur, but the storms should be moving quickly enough to lessen the chance for a flash flood.
Cooler weather will make its way into the area on Friday, with a high of 75 degrees downtown. There’s an 80% chance of storms with heavy rain possible. The highest flash flood threat will be across the eastern sections of the Cameron Peak Burn Scar as well as the Calwood Burn Scar on Friday afternoon.
Saturday will bring similar weather with storms and a high in the low 70s. Sunday will be near 80 degrees, with next week being warmer and drier once again.
