Smoke, haze and hot weather heading into the weekend

Poor air quality due to wildfire smoke and ozone. An ozone action day alert issued again Friday. Temperatures will once again be in the mid to upper 90s.

COLORADO, USA — FORECAST BY METEOROLOGIST: Kathy Sabine

THIS EVENING AT A GLANCE: Smoke from wildfires burning across the Western Slope is making its way to the Front Range. Air quality will be unhealthy for sensitive groups thanks to increased ozone levels and wildfire smoke. Skies will remain hazy and visibility will be poor. 

Friday will make day number 54 in the 90s this summer, which puts us in the Top 10 for most 90 Degree Days. The record is 73 days set in 2012, on average Denver sees 43 90 degree days a year.

Hot and dry again Friday with daytime highs in record territory in the mid to upper 90s.  A little cooler Sunday into Monday with highs in the lower 90s. There is a chance of rain from storms late in the weekend
