Another day of 90s, then rain returns with cooler temps

DENVER -- We reached the 97 degrees in Denver Friday, making it the 36th day at or above 90 this season. We will hit the 90s again on Saturday, adding another day to that total.

Beginning Sunday, we get a break from the hot temperatures, with a string of days in the slightly cooler mid- to upper 80s.

We also have scattered showers and thunderstorms in the forecast each afternoon for the next week. This is good news, as we clearly need the rain. The best days for showers will be on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. The other days will still have storms, but with lesser chances.
