Record heat for Wednesday. Put that coat away – for now. And grab that sunscreen!
You probably looked at your phone’s weather app the last few days and thought, “Yo, it’s gonna get warm.”
Indeed it is, at least for the next couple of days.
The National Weather Service is forecasting that we will likely break record daily highs today and Wednesday, with highs of 83 and 84 expected for each day. The previous records were 80 (set April 11, 1982) and 79 (set April 12, 2018).
It won’t be, like, summer hot, of course, as we’re a ways out from that thankfully.
But we will probably feel the Colorado sun doing its thing of feeling very hot as we will have clear skies both days. So don’t forget your shades and maybe wear long sleeves if you’re biking or just planning to be out and about.
