Denver weather: Smoky, hazy and still very hot

Smoke and haze from Colorado’s numerous wildfires will continue to be felt Saturday up and down the Front Range, as the weather remains hot and dry.

Highs in Denver are expected to hit 93 degrees, according to the National Weather Service in Boulder. The Eastern Plains could see severe storms in the afternoon.

The wildfires led the state’s Department of Public Health and Environment to issue air quality alerts through Saturday evening for much of the Front Range.

“People with heart or lung disease, older adults, and children should reduce prolonged or heavy exertion on Saturday,” the alert said.
