Denver weather: Hot with isolated afternoon rain showers


Although it may not be sidewalk-egg-frying hot, Denver will be cooking Friday.

Luckily, the skies will cloud up in the afternoon and a few rain showers could cool things off a bit, meteorologists from the National Weather Service in Boulder said.

It was already 72 degrees at 6 a.m. Friday and with clear, sunny skies over the city, the NWS forecast of 95-degree heat doesn’t seem out of the question.

It will be even hotter on the Eastern Plains. Forecasters say it will be 99 degrees both in Fort Morgan in the north and Lamar in the south.

Clouds will build in the afternoon, when there is a 20 percent of rain showers and thunderstorms after 2 p.m., the NWS said.

It will remain hot today with a good chance of storms in the mountains, mainly isolated thunderstorms across the plains late this afternoon and evening. The storms may produce wetting rainfall in the mountains but mainly gusty winds across the plains. #cowx

On Saturday, the high temperature could reach 95 degrees again before afternoon showers and thunderstorms cool things off a tad.

When temperatures rise each day to 94 degrees each day on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday it certainly won’t feel like a cold front moved into town.

Afternoon rain and thunderstorms are forecast from Sunday to Wednesday.

On Thursday, it will be sunny and just plain hot, with a high temperature of 95 degrees. Sound familiar?
