DENVER - Partly to mostly cloudy skies are expected Saturday morning with temperatures in the 40s along the Front Range. By the afternoon, look for dry conditions with lots of sunshine and highs near seasonal average.
An upper-level trough moves out of the state as we head into the weekend and a ridge of high pressure builds in. This means there are a few isolated showers and storms that will continue to fire up on the back side of this trough as it passes, but then for the weekend things will quiet down and warm up for us!
Tonight, partly cloudy skies are expected as lows drop into the mid 40s. For tomorrow though, we warm into the low 70s. It will feel very comfortable for your Saturday. Mostly sunny skies are expected with a few passing clouds possible. There is about a 10% chance we may see a pop-up shower for the afternoon, but overall things will be quiet.
Sunday looks to be even warmer. Highs will climb into the upper-70s to low-80s! Again, mostly suuny skies are expected with a slight chance for a pop-up shower or two by the afternoon.
That ridge sticks around for the start of next work week. We will see highs in the low-to-mid 80s by Monday and Tuesday!
The warmer weather will feel very good as we have not hit 80 degrees since March 16th! The pattern will shift again by late next Tuesday and Wednesday with showers and thunderstorms becoming more likely along with slightly cooler temperatures.
