Denver will nearly reach its daily record high to end August ahead of forecasted rain.

According to the National Weather Service in Boulder, Denver will top out at 95 degrees on Tuesday, falling just shy of the 98-degree record for this date. The low will be 63 degrees. Smoke is going to hang around in the air, prompting the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment to issued an Ozone Action Alert for air quality.

Remnants of tropical cyclone Nora will impact Denver in the form of rain on Wednesday. The day will start clear but with the same smoke plum overhead. There’s a 60% chance of precipitation in the evening, bringing 20 mph winds and a low of 61 degrees. Denver will reach about a 90-degree high before the weather turns.

The chance of rain will last through Thursday afternoon. Cooler temperatures will arrive, too, as the high will only touch 84 degrees. The low should hang around 60 degrees.

More rain is possible Friday, and temperatures may not warm back into the 90s until later in the weekend or early next week.
