DENVER — The warm and dry weather will continue across Colorado for two more days and we will once again flirt with the record high this afternoon.
We’ll see highs in the mid to upper 70s this afternoon, with more 50s and 60s in the mountains. There is already some increasing clouds in the mountains and that cloud cover will spread east over the plains.
Nighttime lows will be mild as well with readings in the low to mid 40s for Denver and the eastern plains and in the middle 20s to low 30s in the mountains.
Fire danger will be increasing across the state with the warm and dry weather. On Friday, the winds will be stronger and gusty just ahead of a major shift in the weather pattern. A Fire Weather Warning has been issued for the eastern plains for Friday.
A cold front will hit this weekend, spreading rain and snow over western Colorado Saturday afternoon and bringing a chance for rain and snow to eastern Colorado on Sunday.
Expect highs to drop into the 50s on Sunday, with a chance of showers on the plains and 30s with much-needed snow for the mountains. Colder weather with a chance for snow will continue for early next week.
Temperatures will be just in the 40s for highs in the Denver area for most of next week.
