Denver weather: Hot weekend with near 90-degree highs ahead

Denver will see near 90-degree temperatures over the next few days in a relatively dry weekend.

The highest chance of showers and storms is Friday with a 30% chance after 1 p.m., then Sunday has a 20% chance in the early afternoon.

High temperatures will be 87 degrees Friday, 89 degrees Saturday and 88 degrees Sunday.

Fridays storm and shower coverage will mostly stay along and south of Interstate 70 in the afternoon and evening, and the Palmer Divide may get the brunt of that severe weather.

Winds gusts up to 35 mph are possible with moderate to heavy rain in the stronger storms Friday.

Up to half an inch of rain within 30 minutes is possible in those storms, and the Cameron Peak Burn Area has an elevated risk of flash flooding.

Saturday storms should bring isolated storms mostly in the mountains and west of Interstate 25, and Denver has less than 10% chance of showers or storms the whole day. Most burn areas only have a limited risk of flash flooding for Saturday and Sunday.

Sunday storms could also stay out of the immediate Denver area and stay south of I-70, and a lack of moisture in the Urban Corridor could lead to a 90-degree day for Denver.

That dry Sunday will lead a drier next week, as storm chances remain low and temperatures stay around the mid-80s.
