From Chief Meteorologist Dave Fraser
High Fire Danger: The eastern half of Colorado remains under very dry conditions. We haven’t had any significant moisture in more than a month. So, fire concerns are running very high. Tomorrow we will be under a RED FLAG WARNING for continued high fire danger. Several counties along the Front Range have fire bans in place. Please be careful. It will be very windy on Tuesday, very dry and very warm warm with highs in the low 70s. Denver looks to break another February high temperature record as we will surpass the record of 71 set in 1995.
Mountains: It will be dry and very gusty over the Colorado high country on Tuesday. More light snow will return on Wednesday into Thursday. Another shot of snow will be possible on Saturday into Monday.
Snow Finally Returns: We are expecting a strong cold front to arrive on Thursday. Temperatures will quickly fall into the 30s during the morning hours. Snow will also develop as we approach the lunch hour. Snow looks to continue into early on Friday before ending. Several inches of accumulation is possible with a lot of melting early. We should get some sunshine back on Friday, but it will be a cold & brisk day. Right now your Saturday is looking chilly and dry. We have snow showers in the forecast again on Sunday & Monday. This is good news as we are lagging way behind on snow in Denver and across eastern Colorado.
