As we enter the latter half of August we would normally start to see high temperatures decrease however that will not be the case this week. The forecast for each day puts highs into the 90s and by the end of the week it may be downright hot.
For Monday we will see mostly sunny skies with high temperatures around 92 degrees in the Denver metro area. Some scattered thunderstorms are expected to develop, mainly in the high country, although a stray cell or two may move across lower terrain.

Tuesday will look somewhat similar to today but with increased chances for thunderstorms. Highs will be around 91 degrees and most of the day will feature mostly sunny skies. By late afternoon / early evening a disturbance is expected to move through. This will bring scattered thunderstorms across much of the area.
Mid-week on Wednesday will follow with temperatures right around the 90 degree mark under partly sunny skies. There will be just a slight chance for thunderstorm activity.

We will close out the workweek on Thursday and Friday with temperatures well-above normal. With a dry atmosphere and high pressure around us, the mercury will climb to the mid-90s on the Front Range. Areas further to the east could see the upper 90s.
For the weekend atmospheric moisture will increase a bit and while temperatures will cool, it won’t be by much. Look for highs in the low 90s with a slight chance for afternoon and evening thunderstorms.
