Denver will be closer to an older record on Wednesday than Colorado itself. Forecasters predict that temperatures can reach 100 degrees Celsius, surpassing the existing daily record of 98 degrees Celsius set in 1876. Colorado joined the union a few days later on August 1, 1876.
In many of today’s plains, temperatures can reach close to 100 degrees Fahrenheit, and daily temperatures in Denver can exceed 98 degrees Fahrenheit.

According to the National Meteorological Service of Boulder, Denver will reach 99 degrees on Wednesday under clear skies. Thunderstorms occur at the top of the mountain, but metropolitan areas need to remain dry. Overnight temperatures drop to 68 degrees Celsius.
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment expects Wednesday to be an unhealthy air day for everyone. Poor air quality affects the entire metropolitan area.
This is rather rare.@CDPHE Today’s air along the front range has been declared unhealthy for everyone. It’s not just the standard sensitive groups. Ozone is the problem.

Monsoon dampness on Fridays and Denver have a 40% chance of a thunderstorm in the afternoon. The end of the week is generally sunny and drops to 66 degrees overnight.
“Rain showers and thunderstorms can occur. Slow storms can increase the threat of flash floods and can cause heavy rains,” the NWS warns. “Mountain and hilly burn areas are most vulnerable to flooding, but heavy rains can occur in all forecast areas.”
