DENVER — Summer is holding on strong across Colorado!  Another day in the 90s today with a high of 91 degrees so far in Denver.  The record is 92, set in 1948. Skies will be clear tonight with lows around 60 degrees.

The predicted high is 93 degrees for Saturday and the record is 92 degrees, which was set in 2000.

Northwestern Colorado has high fire danger with gusty winds, dry conditions and low relative humidity. A Fire Weather Warning will be in effect again on Saturday.

The aspens are really pretty in the northern and central mountains! It is a nice time to get up to the high country and enjoy the annual display of aspen gold, especially in areas along and north of I-70.  Southern mountain areas will be reaching peak color in another 7 to 10 days.

Little change in the overall weather pattern is expected through early next week. Hot and dry conditions will prevail statewide, although temperatures will not be quite as high — around 90 degrees on Saturday and in the upper 80s for Sunday. Fire danger will remain high, so be careful out there!

So far, we have seen 54 days of 90-degree-plus heat here in Denver. That's about 10 more days than normal. 

The gradual cooling trend will come by the middle of next week with highs returning to the low to mid 80s by Wednesday.  There will be some showers on Thursday with highs in the 70s!
