Denver weather: Hot, mostly clear week on the Front Range

Denver will begin the week hot and sunny. And it will stay that way into the weekend.

Denver has a 20% chance of storms on Monday, according to the National Weather Service in Boulder. If an isolated storm does roll by, it could be capable of producing 45 mph wind gusts. However, dry air will dominate the day as the high tops out at 92 degrees. The low will be 61 degrees.

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) says occasional gusty winds and deep atmospheric mixing will keep ozone levels healthy on Monday. Out-of-state wildfire smoke is expected to increase Monday morning, especially for the northern parts of the Front Range region, including Greeley, Longmont and Ft. Collins.

CDPHE warns only unusually sensitive people should consider reducing prolonged or heavy exercise in this area, and they have not issued any air quality alerts for Monday.

Tuesday will be very dry with a high of 94 degrees, the NWS forecasts. The low temperature will dip to 61 degrees.

A weak front will move in Wednesday, adding a touch of moisture. There will be a 20% chance of storms in the early evening. It will be a sunny day with a high of 92 degrees and a low of 62 degrees.

Temperatures aren’t expected to cool below the 90s until the weekend.
