We expect Saturday to be the hottest day with a high in the mid 90s. We are forecasting a reading at 94 degrees. The record high in Denver on May 26th is 95 set in 1942.

We will still be hot with temperatures near 90 on Sunday. There is an isolated thunderstorm possible, but most places will stay dry.
The forecast still looks stormy on your Memorial Day. We will only warm to about 80 degrees with increasing clouds.
