Denver weather: September sizzles as city sets record-high temp on Thursday.

Denver set a record-high temperature Thursday when the mercury soared to 95 degrees.

The new record for Sept. 9, set at 1:02 p.m. Thursday, breaks the prior Denver mark of 94 degrees set in 1994, according to the National Weather Service.

And the September heat isn’t over.

Friday’s high temperature in Denver is expected to be 97 degrees, according to the NWS forecast. The record-high temperature for Denver on Sept. 10 is 93 degrees set in 2018.

Sunny, hot, dry and smoky weather is expected across northeastern Colorado on Friday. A couple of weak cold fronts will bring cooler temperatures to the area on Saturday and Sunday, although
temperatures are expected to remain above normal, the weather service said.

The Denver weather forecast for Saturday calls for a high temperature of 92 degrees, with mostly sunny skies and a 10% chance for afternoon showers and thunderstorms.
