Fire and ice: Record weekend highs to cold and snow in Denver Tuesday

The first of two cold fronts move into Colorado tonight helping to cool off temps. A stronger front pushes in Sunday morning, bringing strong wind and showers.


TODAY AT A GLANCE: After a sizzling hot Saturday, a cool off is coming our way Sunday! It'll finally feel like fall! 

Dry, warm and windy conditions will lead to higher fire danger again Saturday in Colorado as a Red Flag Warning is in effect for the northern metro, central mountains and foothills and the far northeastern plains. Wind gusts will be up to 40 mph, along with relative humidity values between 10% and 15%. The warning will end at 8 p.m. Saturday.

Smoke from wildfires is expected across the Front Range for much of Saturday. Air quality will become unhealthy for sensitive groups, and visibility will be poor along the Front Range.

A first of two cool fronts is scheduled to arrive in Colorado by Saturday evening. The second cool front pushes in Sunday morning, whipping up very gusty winds, cooling off temperatures and bringing a chance for rain. Mild temperatures and dry weather will continue into next week.
