DENVER — It will be warm with afternoon temperatures on Saturday in the upper 60s and then in the low 70s on Sunday across metro Denver and the eastern Plains.  The record highs both days is 76 degrees.

The high pressure system will keep things dry so there is a fire weather watch in place to the south and east of Denver.

It will be warm at higher elevations with highs each afternoon through Sunday in the upper 30s to low 40s.

And it will be breezy to windy at times. Snow looks to arrive late on Sunday into early on Monday and doesn’t look too significant with just a few inches possible.

A cold front will increase the wind from the north on Monday across the eastern Plains. Temperatures will return to the cooler 50s for Denver.

As the front passes, it could trigger a sprinkle or light rain shower. However, most places look to stay dry.
