DENVER (CBS4) – We have a big high pressure ridge taking over the weather picture for the Central Rockies this weekend. This will invite westerly winds that will bring in a few high clouds and big time heat over the Front Range and Eastern Plains.
Denver’s record high is 82 degrees for Saturday and we made it to 81 degrees at DIA. Sunday’s record is 81 degrees and the Mile High City has a good chance to get a degree or two away from that as well.
Sunday will also be a day with a stronger wind gusts. As a result the fire danger will be elevated across the region for Sunday afternoon. There is a Red Flag Warning and a Fire Weather Watch over many locations of eastern Colorado including Denver and the Front Range.
The Fire Weather Watch extends into southern Colorado as well.
There is a small chance for a few rain showers in the area on Tuesday as the weather pattern shifts to a little cooler and wetter pattern. Lets hope for more days like that! Have a great weekend!
