DENVER (CBS4) – A large ridge of high pressure is building into the Rocky Mountain region for the weekend and we saw the positive effect of that today when we reached 78 degrees officially, 79 downtown, with mostly sunny skies. As we begin the weekend even warmer temperatures come our way: look for mostly sunny skies and a high in the low 80s for Saturday; partly sunny for Mothers Day – Sunday – and Mom will enjoy a pleasant day with partly sunny skies and a high near 80 degrees.
Look for more of the same on Monday: partly sunny with a high around 80. Then turning cooler with a chance for scattered storms on Tuesday, a high in the low 70s; partly sunny on Wednesday with a high back in the low 70s.
