As if the smoky haze isn’t enough, the high temperatures Thursday and Friday are likely to be near or at record levels. The records for Denver and Boulder both 94 today, and for Friday they are 93 in Denver and 94 in Boulder. The next chance for showers does not get here until Saturday, and then it’s only a very small chance.
For some historical perspective, last year we were experiencing an unusually early occurrence of snow and freezing temperatures on the 8th and 9th of September!
