DENVER — Temperatures will continue to jump 10 degrees above average throughout the rest of the holiday weekend.

Highs on Sunday will hit the mid-90s, staying short of the record in Denver of 97 degrees set in 1995. Expect a mix of sun and clouds with breezy conditions.

Temperatures will increase a degree or two by Monday afternoon, with highs reaching the mid- to upper 90s in the Denver metro area.

Denver appears set to shatter a couple of records, including the high for the day that is 95 degrees set in 1983.

Denver also will likely break the record for the hottest temperature in September of 97 degrees set a few times, the most recent in 2017.

If it somehow reaches 100 degrees, it will be the latest day that Denver will have a triple-digit day on record. The current latest 100-degree reading is Aug. 16, 2002.

Expect a mix of sun and clouds with breezy conditions through Monday afternoon. Because of the hot and breezy conditions, fire danger will remain high through the holiday weekend.

Some changes will start to work in by Tuesday with a weak disturbance moving through the state. This will bring a 10% chance of a shower, as well as knock temperatures back into the mid-80s.

Seasonal temperatures will remain for Wednesday with a 10% chance of storms.

Highs will return to the upper 80s by Thursday and Friday with the same 10% to 20% chance of storms across the Front Range.
