DENVER — Are you ready for a little taste of the summer season in spring? Temperatures will skyrocket this weekend!

Before the warm up arrives, it'll be pleasant overnight with mostly clear skies and fairly light winds. The Denver metro area will see lows drop into the mid 30s by morning.

It'll be a sunny, dry start to your Friday with a few clouds rolling in during the afternoon. That won't stop daytime highs from soaring into the mid 70s in the metro with lower 80s on the Eastern Plains.

The winds will once again present an issue as far as elevating fire danger. A Red Flag Warning in effect for the San Luis Valley and the far southeastern plains with gusts up to 35 mph and humidity values as low as 7%. It'll stay blustery on Saturday as a Fire Weather Watch is in place for southeast Colorado.

The Denver metro will head into the weekend with temperatures continuing to climb! It'll be in the upper 70s Saturday and a low 80s on Sunday. The record high is 83 degrees Sunday, so Denver will be in record territory.

Our next storm system moves into the state Monday, bringing a chance of thunderstorms and more seasonal temperatures. It looks like we could even see a rain/snow mix on Tuesday with highs barely making it into the 50s.

Drier conditions return mid-week with a gradual warm up!
