Denver’s weekend of hot weather will continue Sunday with temperatures nearing 100 degrees in the city.
Sunday’s heat follows record-breaking temperatures on Saturday, when Denver International Airport hit a new daily high of 100 degrees.
In the city, high temperatures are expected to top out at 97 degrees Sunday, according to the National Weather Service at Boulder, and residents will see a 20% chance of showers and thunderstorms after noon.
Otherwise, city dwellers can expect sunny skies and sweltering heat throughout the day — and through most of the week. Monday’s highs are expected to be slightly cooler at 84 degrees, but the rest of the week will see temperatures in the mid-to-high 90s, according to the weather service.
Saturday’s heat advisory for Denver has been lifted, though the area is still under a hazardous weather warning, both because of the heat and the potential that afternoon storms will bring heavy wind.
