Discussion

Normal high temperatures are right around 85 degrees for this late June date here in the Denver metro region and we’ll stay way above that for the foreseeable future. An upper level ridge will stay in control of the weather pattern through the week in the Colorado Rockies region and the critical fire danger that we have endured recently will continue. This pattern will help to generate temperatures in the high 90’s later today along with mostly sunny and windy conditions and the hot weather will last right into the upcoming weekend. There is a chance for a shower or thunderstorm as we approach the mid-week time period, but much of the time will be rain-free. Elsewhere, the tropical system (Debby) that we have been monitoring for the last several days over the Gulf of Mexico will continue to pound the Florida Gulf coastal region with tremendous heavy rainfall over the next couple of days.
