Fire danger high across Colorado today


DENVER — It will be a toasty start to the week. Temperatures will soar to near 90 degrees by lunch, with some triple-digit heat across the plains. Highs will stay in the 70s and 80s in the mountains.

Dry conditions are in store for all of eastern Colorado to start the week, with increased fire danger and gusty winds over portions of the eastern plains and Western Slope. A few showers and storms will be possible over our northern mountains Monday.

On Tuesday, our next front will drop our highs in Denver to the low 80s and increase our chance for thunderstorm activity. Some severe storms will be possible.

Drier and warm on Wednesday, with highs in the mid 80s. 90s for highs return for the remainder of the week.

As of now, our Fourth of July holiday weekend is looking mostly sunny and toasty! Highs will be near 90 both Saturday and Sunday, with the slight chance for scattered afternoon and evening storms. Stay tuned!
