Sweet relief is here, Denver.

Today we’re looking at a high of only 84, according to the National Weather Service, and a 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms from noon to 11 p.m.

Unfortunately, the skies will probably remain mostly cloudy, again making it difficult to see the Perseid meteor shower.

It’s going to stay relatively cool throughout the weekend. The NWS says Saturday’s high will be 83 and Sunday’s will be 86. There’s a 30 percent chance of rainy and stormy weather on Saturday, mostly before noon, but Sunday should be crystal clear. Plan your hikes, barbecues and Pokemon hunting accordingly.
