By Lauren Whitney


What a scorcher in Colorado on Thursday. Denver officially hit 105 degrees, tying the all-time record high in Denver. This also broke the daily record high of 99 degrees from 1986.

The heat will continue on Friday, although we'll drop a few degrees the upper 90s. We're encouraging everyone to remember the basic summer heat safety tips including drinking plenty of water, avoiding strenuous outdoor activities, and remembering your pets who will be just as uncomfortable.

Fire danger will stay high for Colorado with stronger winds and low humidity for much of the state. This means another round of Red Flag Warnings for all of western Colorado and many areas to the south.

We'll get a break from the heat on Saturday, as highs drop to the low 80s. We could see a few isolated thunderstorms on Saturday, but overall it will still be a pretty dry day.

Heat builds back next week, so enjoy the brief cool off while it lasts.
