KUSA - A drier weather pattern settles in for a couple of days before the next storm system arrives bringing a chance for showers, according to the Colorado weather forecast.
Highs on Monday only reached 43 degrees at DIA, but the weather for Tuesday will reach near seasonal averages. Some areas of patchy fog are possible early Tuesday in low lying areas, lifting by 9 a.m. Skies will gradually become sunny with highs in the upper 50s and low 60s on the Front Range. Temperatures in the mountains will be mild as well with 40s and 50s. The warmest temperatures will be on the western and Southeast Colorado where highs will rise into the 60s.
Wednesday's weather will be 10 to 15 degrees above seasonal averages with highs rising into the low 70s. As nice as that sounds, the catch is that winds will be picking up ahead of the next storm that arrives on Thursday. The dry, warm, and windy weather could lead to concerns for fire danger.
The wintry weather is possible as early as Wednesday afternoon and evening for the High Country with light showers possible for the I-25 corridor by Thursday morning. Highs on Thursday will rise to the 50s with a 30 percent chance of showers. By Friday warmer and drier weather returns and sticks around through the weekend.
Currently the storm is still in the pacific, but as it approaches winds and clouds will increase. Snow is possible as early as Wednesday afternoon and evening in the mountains.
