DENVER — FORECAST BY: Meteorologist Keely Chalmers
TODAY AT A GLANCE: Above seasonal normal high temperatures will continue right on through the weekend. In fact, we are expecting 80 degree plus temperatures into Monday. The dry, warm, and breezy conditions will continue as well. Winds are expected to pick up this afternoon. Those gusty conditions will continue through Sunday. In some areas, like the Palmer Divide south and the eastern plains, winds could gust up to 50 mph.
The southwest flow over our state will remain in place through the weekend keeping our weather very warm and dry. Monday will stay sunny and only slightly cooler.
Then our next system pushes into the region increasing the chances for a few showers or storms. Behind that system comes a cold front, dropping our daily high temperatures from the 80s to the 60s. Those high temperatures will remain below normal for the remainder of the week. Expect highs only in the mid 60s to around 70 degrees.
