Discussion

Hot and dry conditions yesterday consisted of afternoon high temperatures in the low 90’s in some spots with extremely low dew point values as low as 12 degrees which, of course, did not help the wildfire situation at all. Normal high temperatures for Denver are around 82 degrees and we’ll continue to be slightly above normal for the next couple of days although not as extreme as on Wednesday. After a slight chance for scattered thunderstorms for tomorrow and Saturday, the weather will turn somewhat warmer and drier again to begin the new week.
