DENVER (KDVR) — Saturday kicks off a warm stretch that will last through next week. Denver’s current average high temperature is in the upper 60s, but Saturday will be in the upper 80s.
Just before 1 p.m., the temperature recorded at Denver International Airport of 89 degrees broke our record high of 87 set in 1989.
Along with the warmth, the wind is picking up. There will be gusty conditions this weekend as a “cool” front moves through Saturday night with some moisture mainly for the mountain peaks.
The main concern will be the high fire danger, so no outdoor burning or any activities that can produce a spark this weekend.
There could be a few passing showers Saturday evening into Sunday morning (a 10% chance) along the northern border closer to Wyoming and Nebraska. But, the rest of the Front Range will be dry.
