While Denver is no stranger to heatwaves, when one heatwave after another occurs, problems begin to arise.

Here are some tips to stay calm and safe:

  • Remember to drink plenty of water and fluids
  • Avoid the sun as much as possible
  • Wear loose, light, light-colored clothes that cover as much skin as possible.
  • Find an air-conditioned place and limit your exposure to the sun.
  • Avoid strenuous work during the hottest times of the day.

It is also important to remember to never leave children or pets alone in closed vehicles.

Temperatures will drop to just below 37°C on Tuesday, with forecasters predicting a return of scattered showers.
