After a record 105 degrees on Thursday, Denver's high of 97 Friday will be easier to endure – but it's still damn hot.
In fact, there are fire warnings from north to south Colorado on the west Half of the state.
"Another very hot day today, but temperatures will not be quite as bad as yesterday," meteorologists from the National Weather Service in Boulder said. "A red flag warning is in effect from late this morning until evening for high elevations."
Stay tuned. A real cool down is on the way.
By Saturday, the high will only be 73 degrees, a 32-degree drop in temperature in two days, according to the National Meteorological Service in Boulder.
