Windy, dry and very warm weather will continue across Colorado with high fire danger for much of the state

The storm track remains too far to the north of Colorado, so rain chances will remain low through the weekend, with only a slight chance for some thunderstorms next week.

Skies will be mainly cloud-free, but there will be a large amount of haze and smoke from the wildfires that are in Arizona and New Mexico. The worst of the smoke will cover eastern Colorado through Wednesday afternoon.

Winds will be strong and gusty, especially across the southern half of our state, and fire danger remains high across a good portion of Colorado. Fire weather warnings are in place for Wednesday once again as any wildfires that develop could quickly grow and spread — be very careful to not catch anything on fire!

It will be quite a bit warmer on Wednesday with highs 85 to 90 degrees for Denver and the eastern plains. In the mountains, highs will be in the mid-70s to around 80 degrees on Wednesday — the snow is melting out quickly!

A weak cold front will cool things down a little on Thursday. Expect highs in the low to mid-70s with a few widely scattered rain and snow showers in the northern mountains.

Friday, Saturday and Sunday will be in the low 80s with lots of sunshine, but no rain.

Monday and Tuesday will be a little cooler with a few afternoon thunderstorms.
