Cooler temperatures are finally on the way

DENVER -- The heat was on again Monday in Denver as highs reached the low 90s.  That set a record stretch of hot days for September.

There will be more 90-degree day added to that stretch with a high of 92 forecast on Tuesday.

That would put the stretch at nine days. And it could be close to the record high of 93 degrees set in 1895.

Some relief from the heat arrives Wednesday. Temperatures will cool into the 80s and then into the 70s by the end of the week thanks to a cold front.

There's a chance for showers late on Wednesday and again Thursday. It's not a lot of rain, but given the hot and dry conditions of late, it will help in spots.
