DENVER -- At 2:25 p.m. Wednesday, Denver officially hit 90 degrees for the first time in 2019. It is tied for the 17th-latest first 90-degree day in Denver's 148 years of record keeping.

On average, Denver records its first 90 degree temperature on June 10. The city averages 30 days at or above 90 degrees annually.

On Thursday, we are expecting mainly sunny skies combined with a southwesterly wind. These conditions will keep our high temperatures in the low 90s through Saturday.

We are expecting afternoon showers and thunderstorms to return on Saturday. However, we still expect to reach 90 degrees for a fourth consecutive day before the rain arrives.

Our next best chance for showers and thunderstorms will be on Sunday and Monday as temperatures cool back into the 80s with the higher rain chances.

We will stay in the 80s through the middle of next week with only isolated to scattered storms possible.
