Denver hit a high of 99 degrees on Wednesday - just one degree shy of the record high and the hottest day of the season so far.

Thursday has been another hot one, but a weak "cold front" slipped into the area and brought down the feverish temperatures just a bit. Nonetheless, temperatures did get into the low 90s.

There will be just a few building clouds and a slight chance of an isolated gusty thunderstorm early tonight. Very little moisture is making its way over the eastern plains and most of the storms will stay over the mountains before dissipating overnight.

Not quite as hot across the Denver metro area Thursday

Temperatures will soar into the mid-to upper90s again on Friday, and there will be a slight chance for a few afternoon thunderstorms. Expect upper 70s to mid 80s in the mountains with a better chance for storms.

This pattern will continue through Sunday and into early next week. Expect highs in the 90s next week as Denver Public Schools heads back to school!
