DENVER (CBS4) – The weather pattern in Colorado will stay very stagnant this week thanks to a large ridge of high pressure over the Western United States. We’ll have mostly sunny skies, warm temperatures, and stay very dry through Friday.

Normally with a extended stretch of dry weather would give us some concern about potentially worsening drought conditions or fire danger. But fortunately the wind should never get too strong this week and the Denver metro area remains far above normal with precipitation in October thanks to the very wet first week and half of the month.

On Friday, a cold front will work it’s way into the state. This will bring a chance for rain and snow for the high country, with a slight chance for rain on Saturday in Denver. It will also cool us off to the 60s on Satruday.

Looking further ahead, there are signs the weather pattern will start changing around the 26th or 27th and the very end of the month (including maybe Halloween) will include cooler and possibly wetter weather. We’ll keep you posted!
