It will be a warm, dry and windy week across Colorado with elevated fire danger most afternoons through Saturday. The storm track remains too far to the north of Colorado, so rain chances will remain low.

Skies will be mainly cloud-free, but there will be a fair amount of haze and smoke from the wildfires that are in Arizona and New Mexico.

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 Tuesday once again as any wildfires that develop could quickly grow and spread - be very careful to not anything on fire!

Highs will be in the upper 70s to low 80s along the Front Range Tuesday. It will be quite a bit warmer on Wednesday with highs closer to 90 degrees. In the mountains, highs will be in the upper 60s to mid-70s Tuesday and around 80 degrees on Wednesday - the snow is melting out quickly!

Thursday will be a little cooler, but unfortunately still dry with highs in the upper 70s. Friday and Saturday will be in the low 80s, with a chance for a few thunderstorms Saturday afternoon and evening.

Sunday will be slightly cooler again, but still no rain. Monday will be sunny, warm and dry.
