Dry and windy near Denver, with severe storm on the plains


DENVER — It will be another warm and breezy day, but not quite as hot as yesterday’s record-breaking afternoon. Denver reached 92 degrees on Tuesday, a new record for the date, eclipsing the old mark of 90 degrees set back in 2009.

Today will see mid 80s on the plains, with a few more late day storms well off to the east of I-25. The winds will pick up ahead of a cold front on Thursday and that means continued fire danger across parts of Colorado.

We’ll see gusts near 30 mph across the Denver metro area, with stronger winds over the southern and southwestern areas of the state.

This fast-moving cold front will usher in some cooler air by Thursday. We’ll see highs in the 60s in the mountains and 70s across the plains.

Friday and Saturday will be dry and pleasant, followed by a better chance for thunderstorms on Sunday.
