COLORADO, USA — FORECAST BY: Meteorologist Laurann Robinson
TODAY AT A GLANCE: Another hot afternoon, with highs climbing into the mid 90s! We'll stay sunny and dry across most of the front range, but can't rule out a very brief, spotty afternoon shower, or isolated evening storm. The best chance for showers will be over the mountain and foothill areas, as the monsoonal moisture begins to push back into the state.
Dry air and gusty winds will dominate the eastern plains, so a Red Flag Warning will be in effect for the northeastern corner of Colorado for most of the day Wednesday. Main concerns will be winds gusting up to 35 mph and relative humidity as low as 10 percent. Any fires that start will have the potential to spread rapidly.
Any storm activity clears out overnight, with lows in the low 60s.
Monsoonal moisture, along with a cold front, slide into the state Thursday. Expect cooler daytime highs and better chances for storms. Wet weather, with highs in the 80s, sticks around through Saturday.
Storms will become more isolated Sunday and Monday, for the 4th of July holiday. Highs will also increase a bit, reaching the lower 90s through midweek.
