It has been a hazy, hot and dry Labor Day across Colorado.

Skies have been hazy, but still filled with plenty of sunshine statewide as highs reached the low to mid 90s on the plains and 70s to low 80s in the mountains.

Skies will stay hazy overnight with lows in the middle 30s to lower 40s in the mountains and mid to upper 50s for Denver and the eastern plains.

A weak cold front will cross over the northeastern plains on Tuesday. Temperatures will drop a few degrees, with more mid to upper 80s over the northeastern plains. There is very little moisture with this front, so no rain is expected.

Wednesday through Friday will be very hot and dry with highs in the middle to upper 90s over eastern Colorado and some triple digits in southeastern Colorado. The mountains will be in the 70s and lower 80s.

So far in 2021, Denver has reached 90 degrees or hotter 53 times, 95 degrees or hotter 26 days, and 100 degrees or hotter five times.

Another weak cold front will push across the state Friday night and bring some slightly cooler weather again for the weekend. There will be some scattered thunderstorms late Friday in the mountains and across the state Saturday afternoon.
