DENVER — DENVER — It was another scorching hot day with mid to upper 90s along the I-25 corridor. Denver International Airport hit 97-degrees, just two degrees shy of the record high of 99-degrees.

Along with the heat, an Air Quality Warning is in effect until midnight Thursday for the Front Range as we're tracking high levels of ozone. If you have respiratory issues like asthma, consider limiting your time outdoors.

A few gusty thunderstorms are possible Thursday evening but most will stay east of I-25. Look for partly cloudy skies in Denver overnight with lows in the upper 50s.

A cold front will settles into the Front Range overnight, helping to drop daytime highs back to the low to mid 80s Friday. Look for better chance for more widespread and severe storms along the I-25 corridor and eastern plains. Keep the cars in the garage, if you can! The biggest threats will be damaging winds, large hail, tornadoes and flooding rains throughout much of the afternoon and evening.

As this system clears out, it's looking like a warmer and drier Father's Day weekend to come. Highs will return to the low to mid 90s Saturday and Sunday along with mostly sunny skies and limited storms.

Slightly cooler temperatures and another round of storms return next week.
