DENVER — The hot weather continues across Colorado as highs reached the upper 90s on Tuesday, not quite as hot as the 100 degrees on Monday, but still well above the average readings for mid-July. Denver has had four days of 100 degrees or hotter this year and 30 days of 90 degrees or higher.

Scattered thunderstorms have offered some brief relief from the hot and dry conditions, but most of these storms bring only a short burst of rain and some thunder and lightning before moving on.

Tuesday afternoon forecast

A weak cold front will move into the state overnight, bringing slightly less hot weather for Wednesday. There will be a better chance for thunderstorms Wednesday with highs in the low to mid-90s.

Thursday and Friday will be very hot and mainly dry again as high temperatures return to the upper 90s to around 100 degrees, and rain chances drop back to less than 20%.

Another weak cold front will slip into Colorado over the weekend. Expect slightly lower temperatures and a better chance for some thunderstorms. In fact, the highs on Sunday may stay in the upper 80s in the Denver area!

Low 90s will return early next week.
