Skies will be partly to mostly sunny through Monday in Denver with a 10 percent chance of an isolated shower in the afternoon or evening.

High temperatures will be about 75 degrees with winds gusting up to 35 mph.

Wind, dry fuels and low humidity will create critical fire weather conditions on Monday.
