DENVER – We are in between storm systems this week so for the most part that means quiet weather for a few days.
Skies will be mostly clear statewide for the next 24 hours with just occasional bouts of wind, especially along the Front Range mountains and foothills.
Our next weather maker is just moving on shore in the Pacific Northwest and it will be moving into Colorado by Thursday. It will bring some cooler weather and a quick shot of mountain snow.
Denver and the Front Range could pick up some snow flurries or even a quick snow shower early Friday but wind and cooler temperatures will be the main impacts.
After our brief one day cool down it’s back to summer heat. Warmer and drier air is being transported into the state on Sunday. This will get another little warming trend going for most communities in the central Rockies. For the eastern plains and the western slope highs should rise into the 80s and 90s by afternoon. With 70s to low 80s in the mountains.
There will be slight chance for a few gusty, thunderstorms late in the day along the Palmer Divide from about Castle Rock and Elizabeth southward to Trinidad.
For the week ahead Denver metro temperatures will be getting into the low 90s through the 4th of July with a slight chance each day for an afternoon or early evening shower or thunderstorm.
