According to the National Meteorological Service of Boulder, Denver will reach 95 degrees under almost clear skies. In the afternoon, a gust of 15 mph has a 30% chance of a shower. The chances of a thunderstorm increase to 50% after dark, with a minimum temperature of 65 degrees Celsius. Rain increases the threat of flash floods and affects the highlands. Burn areas are susceptible to increased humidity and slow storm movement.
Air quality on Friday is inferior in Douglas, Jefferson, Denver, Western Arapaho, Western Adams, Bloomfield, Boulder, Larimar and Weld counties.
The weather changes are noticeable on Saturdays as the high temperatures only reach 79 degrees Celsius. There is an 80% chance of a shower or thunderstorm early in the morning. Winds gush near 20 mph and can continue to rain until midnight. It is mostly cloudy in the evening and drops to 63 degrees Celsius. A cold front means that there is a high risk of flash floods that are not limited to burned areas.
Sunday is a day with similar weather, with a 60% chance of a shower or thunderstorm. The maximum temperature is 79 degrees Celsius, and it is sunny in some places. The minimum overnight temperature is 61 degrees Celsius.
Early next week, showers and thunderstorms are unlikely throughout the region, but heavy rains are possible. In the extended forecast, there are currently no 90 degree days from Friday.
