Dry, warm days ahead; rain returns next week

DENVER -- There will be a break from soggy spring showers for several days before rain returns.

There might be a brief shower in the metro Denver area early Thursday evening. There is a better chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms east of the city on the Plains until about midnight.

Friday is looking fantastic with plenty of sunshine and high temperatures warming into the upper 60s to low 70s.

It will be in the warm 70s from Saturday through Monday with just some afternoon clouds each day.

Skies will turn cloudy starting Tuesday and lasting through the end of next week as rain showers are possible each day.

Temperatures will be cooling back into the 50s through that same period.

Also, while it looks to be rain on the Plains, the mountains will get even more snow starting late Monday and continuing on and off through Friday.

Accumulation could easily be another foot or more. Accumulating snow is also possible in the foothills west of Denver and could be as low as 6,000 feet.
