Warm and dry conditions make the weekend absolutely gorgeous. High temperatures are expected to be back in the 70s to low 80s on the plains through the weekend. In the mountains, sunshine and mild conditions will mean shirt-sleeve skiing at A-Basin, but wear that sunscreen!
Expect more sunny skies on Saturday and Sunday, with temperatures about 10 to 15 degrees above normal. Monday will have a few more high clouds in the sky, but the weather will stay warm and dry. It looks great for some Monday night football here in Denver. Expect temperatures in the mid 60s for the start of the game!
The overall weather pattern does not look very promising for a good soaking storm system. A weak system will move through the central Rockies on Tuesday. There will be some light rain and snow showers in the mountains by early Tuesday, with late showers on the plains.
Temperatures will dip into the 60s on Tuesday, but warm quickly back into the 70s with clearing skies next Wednesday and Thursday. Any shift in the pattern to a cold and wet regime is still a good 8-10 days away.
