Scorching temperatures bring heat advisory


A heat advisory is in place Friday amid the ongoing, scorching heat.

The advisory, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., comes as temperatures soar to 100 degrees across the plains and most of the Interstate 25 corridor, according to the National Weather Service.

The weather service advised on Twitter to “stay hydrated, seek shade, avoid strenuous activities and wear loose fitting clothing” and not to leave children or pets locked in the car.

Temperatures on the Eastern Plains are expected to top 100 on Friday, with highs of 101 in Fort Morgan and Burlington, 102 in Holyoke and Julesberg, and 103 in Wray.

Denver won’t be spared from this heat, as forecasters expect Friday to hit a high of 98 and remain mostly clear. Rain is unlikely with only a 10% chance Friday afternoon.

Temperatures will hit an overnight low of 68 and remain mostly clear.

The weekend will get off to a hot start, too, with an expected high of 98 degrees again Saturday.

Despite Saturday’s steep temperatures, some may relief may come in the form of precipitation, as there’s a 40% chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms expected after noon.

Hitting an overnight low of 68, the rest of the weekend will be slightly cooler.
