Temperatures in Greeley are expected to scrape the mid-90s before the end of the week, making these next few days some of the year's hottest so far.
According to the National Weather Service, daytime temperatures on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday are all forecast at more than 90 degrees. Temperatures during the day Wednesday are projected at 96 degrees.
"It's just getting warmer because we have high pressure and not much moisture," said Natalie Sullivan, a meteorologist who works for the National Weather Service.
That's expected to change on Friday though, she said. By the end of the week, a cooler front will likely move into the Greeley area, and will probably bring a breeze with it. Sullivan said the winds will not be strong, however, and described them as "light and variable."
Increased cloud cover will contribute to lower temperatures on Friday, Sullivan said. Those temperatures are expected to hover in the low-80s, before dipping into the 70s for the weekend.
Throughout the week, Sullivan said, temperatures near the Wyoming border are expected to be about ten degrees cooler than in the Greeley area. There is also a slight chance of precipitation for Weld County's northern hems on Friday as well, she said.
