DENVER — The weather will stay warm and dry all week across Colorado. Temperatures will be about 10 degrees above normal through Saturday.

Areas of smoke and haze will continue to impact portions of northern and east Colorado, especially areas downwind from the Cameron Peak Fire and the Mullen Fire. Air quality advisories are in place for the Front Range as conditions are unhealthy for sensitive groups.

Dry conditions remain across the state and fire danger will remain high. Gusty winds, low relative humidity and warm, dry conditions are a cause for concern this week - especially in the afternoon hours.

Skies will stay mostly clear for the next five days as a dry and quiet weather pattern holds over the Rocky Mountain region. Nighttime lows will dip to the middle 20s to low 30s in the mountains and upper 30s to mid 40s for lower elevations.

Highs will stay in the80s for the Denver area this week and linger into the start of the weekend.

Fall color remains spectacular across the Colorado high country. With mild, dry and quiet weather - this week should be ideal for checking out the lovely leaves! Northern areas are now past peak, but still worth a look. Central and southern Colorado are very colorful.

By Sunday afternoon, a cold front will be moving into Colorado and will bring wind, cooler temperatures and some precipitation Sunday night and Monday. At this time, the storm will probably bring snow to elevations above 8,000 feet and rain to lower elevations.
