KOAA weather

Heat, smoke, and poor air quality are the main stories of the meteorological sector today and tomorrow. High-pressure ridges warm the state and bring afternoon temperatures back to normal summer temperatures.

The increase in heat-induced ozone and wildfire smoke from vigorous western fires deteriorates air quality during the afternoon and evening hours. Be sure to limit your outdoor time, especially if you have respiratory problems in the afternoon and evening.

A cyclone robe scoops northern Colorado on Friday afternoons and evenings, bringing showers and thunderstorms scattered around the mountains and Denver. We could see one or two isolated storms near the Pikes Peak area, but the best storm energies are generally north of Palmer Divide.
