Storms clear out by midnight; warm and dry week ahead

DENVER -- A severe thunderstorm watch remains in effect for southern and eastern Colorado until 9 p.m. Sunday.

A few isolated showers can't be ruled out for the Denver metro area before midnight, but any strong, severe storms will remain on the eastern plains where damaging wind, large hail and frequent lightning will be possible.

Conditions will dry out during the overnight hours, with temperatures dropping into the mid-50s to Monday.

It will be a dry and warm week, with minimal rain chances through the rest of the month.

Because of a shift in the weather pattern, temperatures will be significantly warmer heading into the upcoming workweek.

Highs will jump into the mid-90s on Tuesday through Friday under mostly sunny skies. Expect dry conditions, with the exception of a mountain shower or two on Wednesday afternoon.

Fire danger will increase during the middle of the week due to the increase in temperatures, dry fuels and windy conditions.
