Fire danger remains high for Denver and plains

From 70s on Saturday to 40s on Monday

DENVER -  After highs in the low 70s for Denver Saturday, big chages will begin as we head into the remainder of the weekend.

The breezy, warm and dry conditions mean that fire danger is high.  A number of fire weather warnings will be in effect for all of southeastern Colorado..the eastern plains..and areas around Castle Rock and Castle Pines. A Fire Weather Watch has been issued for Denver and the surrounding cities for Sunday and NE Colorado. 

Another cold front will move into Colorado late Sunday, bringing an increase in clouds and a chance for light rain later in the day toward Ft. Collins.  Highs will drop back to the 60s in Denver on Sunday.

Monday will be chilly with sunny skies and high winds.  Highs will be in the 40s.

Snow has been scarce this season with only seen 19.4" of snow at Denver International Airport - about half normal at this point in the season.  

In the mountains, the snow-pack is roughly at 75% of normal for the season, with the southern mountain areas in the worst shape. The recent storms are helping, but we could use several more good snowstorms!
