Denver, Colorado 2021-06-10 07:25:19 –

Denver — Hot and dry weather continues in Colorado today, with highs in Denver in the mid-to-first half of the 90’s and nearly 100 degrees Celsius in southeastern Colorado.

Gust southwesterly and low humidity increase the risk of fire, especially in western Colorado. Fire weather warnings are issued in the western part of the state.

Denver’s highs on Thursday will average well above 81 degrees Celsius, just below the 99 degrees Celsius record set on June 10, 2013.

In mountainous areas, maximum temperatures range from the mid-1970s to the mid-1980s, and nighttime minimum temperatures range from the late 30s to the mid-1940s.

The wind will blow ahead of the weak cold front today. The front crosses the state on Friday, and Denver sees afternoon temperatures drop by 10 to 15 degrees Celsius. This front will be a dry front, so most of the time the week will end in a clear sky and the temperature will be quite comfortable.

Warm weather will soon return from weekends to early next week, and thunderstorms on Sundays and Mondays are unlikely.

It’s good that spring was very rainy in the eastern half of the state. The drought is almost over so far. Western Colorado is not so lucky and remains very dry.

At Denver International Airport, total rainfall since January 1st is about 10.5 inches. That’s a little over four inches more than usual over the past year.

The latest index shows drought-free conditions from Denver to Cheyenne and northeastern Colorado. Southeastern Colorado has also improved near drought around Pueblo. Western and central Colorado still needs a lot of moisture to get out of the drought.
