Good morning. The high in Denver is 88 degrees today and the skies will remain hazy and smoky due to wildfires burning throughout the country, according to the National Weather Service.

The Front Range remains under an action day for ozone and particulates, meaning “unusually sensitive” people should consider reducing their exertion.

Friday and the weekend will see increasing chances of thunderstorms, including the possibility of some stronger ones, NWS forecasts.
