DENVER (CBS4) – After a weekend of wind, mountain snow and even a few northern plains thunderstorms Colorado weather will be calming down in the week ahead. Wind will be weakening on Monday with mostly sunny skies. Temperatures in Denver and the eastern plains will be warming into the 50s and low 60s.
As the week rolls on a high pressure ridge will be moving in over the nations mid-section warming temperatures into the 70s over eastern Colorado by the middle of the week. Unfortunately, along with the warm up the wind will be returning as well and that may be boosting the fire danger over the plains again by the end of the week.
