By Chris Spears

CASTLE ROCK, Colo. (CBS4) – After a few weeks of unsettled weather that brought much needed moisture to the Front Range and Eastern Plains there’s another stretch of dry and warm days ahead.

High temperatures in the 60s and 70s are expected for at least the next week with no significant rain or snow.

Despite the recent spring storms drought continues in eastern Colorado with the worst conditions along the Interstate 25 urban corridor between Castle Rock, Denver, Boulder and Fort Collins.
