DENVER — FORECAST BY: Meteorologist Danielle Grant
THIS EVENING AT A GLANCE: That high pressure ridge continues to dominate our region, so our fair weather with highs well above normal will continue right through Saturday. Daytime highs will climb into the mid to upper 80s by through Saturday under mostly sunny skies.
Our next system will begin to feed moisture into the southwesterly flow over the state which could bring a few isolated showers to the metro area by Sunday with high temperatures “cooling” by just a few degrees.
The winds will kick up a bit over the weekend leading to high fire danger concerns for eastern Colorado. It'll bring slightly cooler temperatures for the start of October.
