DENVER (CBS4) – High pressure building over Colorado will keep us on the hot side through the weekend. Temperatures won’t be record breaking, but they will be our hottest of the year so far. Friday, Denver hit 92 degrees and we’ll get a few degrees warmer on Saturday.

We’ll be hot, sunny, and dry through the weekend. Thanks to these dry conditions, we’ll see high fire danger for the Western Slope. Red Flag Warnings are in place on both Saturday and Sunday. Please be extra cautious outdoors with these dry conditions.

With all these hot temperatures, we’ll be seeing a lot of snow melting from the high country. This means river levels will rise and water will be moving very quickly. Please do not go in this fast, high water.

We’ll be slightly cooler on Tuesday, but we’ll be very warm and dry until then.
