Good morning. The high in Denver today is 73 degrees, more than 20 degrees cooler than the weekend’s high temperatures, according to the National Weather Service. Cloud cover should clear out throughout the day.

Tomorrow, temperatures rise into the high 70s. The rest of the week should hover around the mid 80s, NWS forecasts.

The air will remain smoky and hazy due to wildfires elsewhere in the country, but that could begin to clear today. In the meantime, young people, old people and those with respiratory conditions are advised to stay indoors if the smoke becomes too thick.
