Heat is back for Denver, Front Range

DENVER -- Temperatures have quickly returned to the hot 90s in Denver and it will stay hot through Saturday with afternoon highs each day in low to mid-90s.

There will be a few late-day thunderstorms each afternoon. Those storms will bring lightning and wind, but very little rain.

The weather pattern is looking more active starting Sunday and into next week.

There will be a better chance for showers and thunderstorms that look to bring beneficial rain.

It will also be much cooler with highs in the 70s and low 80s. It's exactly what is needed to break the dry cycle and provide some relief to fires burning in the state.
