Hotter Friday before slight cool-down for weekend

DENVER -- There will be a few more days in the 90s before rain returns to cool us down.

Friday will be the hottest day of the week in metro Denver, with highs reaching the mid- to high 90s. We will not be in record hot territory, as the record high for June 28 is 105 degrees, set last year. The 105 reading is also Denver's all-time record high, which has been reached five times.

On Saturday, temperatures will be in the low 90s with a few late-day storms possible.

Our best chance for rain arrives on Sunday and Monday along with cooler temperatures back in the low to mid-80s.

Temperatures will stay in the 80s along with a fewer showers and thunderstorms possible each afternoon on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Currently, the forecast for the Fourth of July is looking toasty, with a high in metro Denver near 90 degrees and only an isolated thunderstorm possible.
