Discussion

Triple-digit temperatures gripped the region again on Tuesday and, while we may not hit 100 degrees today, the hot weather pattern will continue. In fact, Tuesday was the 5th day in a row that Denver officially reached 100 degrees which ties the consecutive streak record set in 2005. A frontal boundary will move through the Denver region on Wednesday and enough moisture will advect into the region from our southwest to give us an enhanced chance at some shower and thunderstorm activity compared to recent days. The threat for a thunderstorm will continue on Thursday and Friday as well, but fire danger will persist due to overall very dry conditions.
