Denver weather: Heat expected on Front Range for Tuesday

After a scorching start to what is expected by forecasters to be an especially hot week, Tuesday’s reading is no exception.

With a high of 96 degrees, Tuesday’s forecast calls for mostly sunny skies in the Denver metro area with a 30% chance of showers and thunderstorms, most likely after 3 p.m.

As scattered showers are predicted to hit the southern Front Range on Tuesday, the National Weather Service has issued a hazardous weather warning for potential flash flooding. The warning primarily pertains to those in northeast and north central Colorado.

This comes just a few days after a woman and a girl were killed in a trailer during a flash flood in Larimer County.

Overnight, conditions appear partly cloudy with a slight chance of rain, mostly before midnight. Temperatures are expected to hit a low of 66.

Wednesday’s high may only bring a few degrees of relief, with an expected high of 94. Thursday’s forecast calls for a high of 96, while Friday’s calls for a high of 99.

Precipitation is most likely on Tuesday and Wednesday, where there is a 30% of showers and thunderstorms both days.

The weather service anticipates a higher chance of precipitation into the weekend.
