The weather will stay dry and warm across eastern Colorado on Wednesday, with high fire danger. Highs will be 65 to 70 degrees for the Denver metro area and the eastern plains, with winds gusting from the southwest at 15-35 mph.

The dry conditions and the gusty winds will create high fire danger - a Fire Weather Warning covers Denver and all of eastern Colorado for Wednesday late morning through the late afternoon.

Clouds will increase in the mountains and foothills Wednesday with rain and snow developing. Snow and colder weather will hit the high country Wednesday afternoon and evening, with heavy amounts of 4 to 8 inches likely for the mountains. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for Wednesday night and Thursday morning for the mountains.

Denver and the eastern plains will miss most of the snow as the storm will race too quickly to the east to bring more than some flurries early Thursday.

A warm and sunny afternoon for Election Day!

Strong northwest winds will blast the eastern plains Thursday in the wake of the storm. Colder weather will settle into Colorado with highs in the upper 30s to low 40s.

Friday and the following weekend will be dry, but chilly with lows in the upper teens to low 20s and highs only in the 40s.

Saturday will be mostly sunny and a little milder with highs in the low 50s. Sunday will stay dry, but be just a couple degrees cooler with highs in the upper 40s.
