Denver weather today: Elevated fire conditions likely on warm, dry Tuesday

Tuesday will be warm, dry and breezy in the Denver metro area before a cold front in the evening brings some relief.

The high Tuesday is 75 degrees, and the day will be mostly sunny, with a 20% chance of some rain in the evening.

A Red Flag Warning will be in effect starting at 11 a.m. for the northeast plains and the eastern portions of Adams and Arapahoe counties with critical fire weather conditions likely as wind gusts could reach up to 45 mph.

The Denver area has not been included in the Red Flag Warning right now, forecasters at the National Weather service said, since the Denver area may not get the winds the plains will see, but elevated fire weather conditions are still likely in the Interstate 25 corridor.

The cold front this evening will bring some relief and may have just enough moisture for some light showers after sunset Tuesday evening.

Some patchy frost is also possible with low temperatures in the 40s. Forecasters said there could even be some frost advisories.

The rest of the week still looks sunny with high temperatures right around 70 degrees and lows around 40 degrees. The weekend will see another cold front, and Saturday’s high is only 67 degrees.
