It has been a hot start to September. We broke a record high yesterday when we hit 97 degrees at DIA. The previous record was 93 degrees.

A cold front has moved into Colorado, so our Sunday will be cooler for the afternoon. Our afternoon high at DIA was 86 degrees - a far cry from the record heat we've seen for the last 3 days.

Cooler temperatures are also expected across the mountains, with highs in the uppers 70s to low 80s. There will be some scattered thunderstorms across higher terrain and over the plains this afternoon, which could produce gusty winds and lightning.

Temperatures will stay in the 80s for the beginning of the week. We then have an even stronger cold front that will bring temperatures into the mid 70s with rain on Tuesday.

Our 80s return for the rest of next week.
