Denver weather: It’s another record-breaking hot day

1 min read

The exceedingly hot weather that brought Denver over 100 degrees for the first time in 2021 on Tuesday will stick around another day. The record high was 101 degrees, and it’s expected to be about the same on Wednesday.

The National Weather Service in Boulder forecasts Wednesday will be 100 degrees under sunny skies. There’s a 10% chance that a shower or thunderstorm pops up in the evening as temperatures will drop to a 67-degree low. The isolated thunderstorms are more likely to develop over high terrain in the afternoon and move southeast over the plains, generating some gusty winds in parts of Colorado.

Douglas, Jefferson, Denver, western Arapahoe, western Adams, Broomfield, Boulder, Larimer, and Weld counties are still under poor air quality conditions due to several wildfires in the southwest.

Thursday is another chance for triple digits with a high of 99 degrees under sunny skies. There is a 20% chance of showers after lunch. Thunderstorms with gusty winds will once again be the main threat. Gusts near 20 mph are possible as the low dips to 65 degrees.

The possible storms signal a cool front, bringing the heat down a few notches come Friday. The weather will be 90 degrees with a 30% chance of thunderstorms to end the week with a low of 63 degrees. Moisture will build throughout the day and into the weekend, possibly bringing the return of more consistent scattered showers. Highs will be in the 90s through the weekend.
