Monday has been a warm and dry day before the next cold front brings rain and cooler weather for Denver and some snow for the mountains.

Temperatures topped out in the upper 70s to near 80 degrees this afternoon, and with low relative humidity and gusty winds, fire danger has been high - especially over the southeastern part of the Denver Metro area and the eastern plains.

A cold front will swing through on Tuesday, bringing rain for Denver and the plains and snow for the mountains. Temperatures will drop back to the 50s in the Denver area with 30s in the mountains.

These rain will develop throughout the late morning with scattered rain and even a few thunderstorms on Tuesday afternoon. This rain will briefly switch over to snow Tuesday night and through early Wednesday morning. Roads will likely just be wet with slushy conditions in the high country.

The mountains are under a Winter Weather Advisory for Tuesday and Wednesday for 6 to 10 inches of snow. Denver and the plains can expect a .10-.20" rain event with some wet snow mixed in Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.

Highs will stay in the upper 40s to around 50 degrees on Wednesday. Temperatures will warm back to the low 60s on Thursday.

Friday will be slightly cooler with a chance for showers, followed by a mild and dry weekend with highs in the low 60s.
