It's going to get even hotter across much of Colorado Friday.
Temperatures are forecast to reach at least 100 along the Front Range and in the Plains as well as in Grand Junction.
The highest temperatures are expected to be on the Plains. The mercury is expected to hit 105 in Lamar.
The National Weather Service says a persistent high pressure ridge over the Southwest is responsible for the record heat. Monsoon moisture has been staying to the south.
Denver set a new record yesterday after recording 19 straight days with temperatures in the 90s. Grand Junction is on track to tie its record of 51 consecutive days with temperatures of 90 or above.
