Good morning. The high temperature in Denver today will be 83 degree and the skies are looking clear, according to the National Weather Service.

Today is an air quality advisory day as smoke from fires in other states continues to drift across Colorado. Visibility will remain poor, while air quality is rated moderate, which means “(U)nusually sensitive people should consider reducing prolonged or heavy exertion,” according to the state government.

It will warm up to the high 80s over the next few days, with a slight chance of thunderstorms from Friday through Sunday, NWS forecasts.
