Several cities and area across the Front Range are expected to hit record high temperatures Tuesday.
Highs across the area are in the upper 90s and low 100s, with Denver’s high at 98 degrees. The record high for the day in Denver was 97 degrees in 2020.
“If our current forecast verified, daily record highs would be broken at several of our urban corridor cities, along with a few sites across the high country and eastern plains,” forecasters at the National Weather Service said.
Forecasters advise residents to stay hydrated throughout the day and avoid prolonged periods of strenuous outdoor activities if possible.
The hot weather will also lead to elevated fire conditions across the area.
Relative humidity will fall to 10% to 15%, and a few gusts of up to 20 mph are possible, but there shouldn’t be any critical dangers, according to the National Weather Service.
Coloradans can look forward to a reprieve of the hot weather by Saturday, though, as the high temperature then will be in the mid-60s.
