Another 70+ degree day in the books, Denver! The warm weather along with high fire danger stick around for one more day before cooler temperatures and blustery winds come our way.

Get outside this evening as it'll be a beautiful night. We're expecting mild lows, mainly in the 40s, across the plains by morning.

Heading down to Coors Field for the Rockies home opener Friday? Look for partly cloudy skies along with mid-70s in the afternoon. The one caveat to Friday's forecast will be critically high fire danger coupled with incredibly strong winds. A Red Flag Warning will be in place for the I-25 corridor stretching across the Eastern Plains from 10am to 9pm Friday. Stay weather aware as winds could gust up to 45mph with humidity values between 5 to 10 percent along the Front Range.

Hope you didn't put away the winter gear just yet. Those fierce winds will usher in big changes for the weekend. In fact, a High Wind Watch will go into effect Saturday morning into Sunday morning with wind gusts up to 75mph in the Front Range mountains, foothills and even the I-25 corridor! Along with the blustery winds, it'll be much cooler courtesy of a cold front dropping in on Saturday. Look out for scattered showers and highs in the mid to upper 40s.

Conditions will remain soggy, blustery and cool Sunday and into Monday. The Denver metro area could see a rain/snow mix Monday with heavier snow in the mountains.

So far, it looks like slightly warmer and drier weather return next Tuesday. Low to mid 60s linger Wednesday and beyond.
