DENVER — DENVER — It's getting hot, hot, hot! Statewide temperatures will skyrocket mid-week as a ridge of high pressure builds in across the state.

It'll be a mostly sunny start to your Wednesday with highs in the mid 90s by the late afternoon. Don't forget to the SPF and water if you're spending any time outdoors.

A couple of storms may drift off the foothills and onto the plains, but they won't bring much moisture or relief from the heat. If any storms do pop up, there's a very low risk those cells would turn severe.

An Air Quality Warning is in effect until 4pm Wednesday for the Front Range as we're tracking high levels of ozone. If you have respiratory issues like asthma, consider limiting your time outdoors.

Thursday will likely be the hottest day of the year so far, with highs around 95 to 100 degrees across the Urban Corridor. Look for scorching sunshine and minimal moisture.

A weak cold front will slip into Colorado late Thursday into Friday, bringing back a chance for more widespread thunderstorms Friday afternoon and evening. A few could turn severe, so keep your eyes to the sky!

So far, it looks like a warmer and drier Father's Day weekend to come.
