Denver weather: Sweltering heat streak will put temperatures in 90s for the next week

“All aboard the 90s train!” the National Weather Service seemingly proclaims.

Come rain or shine, Denver is entering a weather heat streak that meteorologists in Boulder predict will put the Mile High City in the hot seat for at least a week.

High temperatures will hover in the mid 90s every day until next Wednesday, when the daily high is forecast to be 95 degrees.

“Make sure to stay hydrated, use sunscreen and don’t forget about your pets!” the NWS said Thursday, when the high temperature is expected to reach a sweltering high of 95 degrees.

You can thank a strong upper level ridge, which is parked over Colorado for the next seven days, for the heat, the NWS said in a Thursday morning tweet.

All aboard the 90s train! Today will begin a streak of 90°+ highs in Denver that is expected to last at least through the next 7 days. Make sure to stay hydrated, use sunscreen, and don’t forget about your pets! #COwx

Scattered rain and thunderstorms will accompany the heat every afternoon over the next seven days, forecasters said.

The best chance for rain will be this weekend, when there is a 40 percent chance of rain showers both Saturday and Sunday, the NWS said.
