This week it's going to be HOT in Colorado...
According to the Denver Post:
A large area of high pressure, or a dome of heat, is still on track to bring record-breaking heat to most of Colorado this week. Daily, monthly and all-time record highs are likely to fall as the workweek unfolds.
We expected June to be hotter and drier than what we’ve experienced the last few months and we sure are about to live up to that hot expectation. An Excessive Heat Warning has been issued for areas around Grand Junction and Nucla in Western Colorado from Monday afternoon to Friday afternoon. This is the first-ever Excessive Heat Warning issued in Colorado. In 2017 there was an Excessive Heat Watch issued for a similar area and there have only been three instances (in 2008, 2017 and 2020) where heat advisories were issued for a portion of Colorado.
Though temperatures in Denver will near but likely not break monthly or all-time record highs, the NWS in Boulder is forecasting temperatures near or above 100 degrees for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, which will likely break daily temperature records.
Here are Denver temps for the week:
