Relief from the heat on the way

DENVER -- Tuesday was the 29th day in Denver with a temperatures at or above 90 degrees this year.

On average, Denver will record about 42 days with readings at 90 degrees or higher. The city is slightly ahead of last year with hot afternoons. And another one coming is Wednesday that will put it at 30 days.

There are a couple of cold fronts on the way to break the heat that will drop temperatures out of the 90s and into the mid- to upper 80s.

And those cold fronts will bring some much-needed rain. The chances will still be scattered meaning not everyone gets rain.

But there will be some good soaking showers on Thursday, Friday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.
