As a low pressure system that's been lingering over Kansas moves towards the Great Lakes, high pressure will take control of Colorado's weather, and bring more sunshine for Saturday. Highs will climb above-average. (Generally 70s and 80s on the Plains, with 60s and 70s in the mountains).
Sunday will be even warmer, but that's because another cold front will be moving in our direction from Montana. As is typical, the wind speeds will increase as the front gets closer, then thermometer readings will fall on Monday (but not as dramatically as the temperatures we just went through).
Tuesday, we'll be back to "breezy and warmer", with increasing clouds and wind on Wednesday, in advance of another cold front, that will bring us another chance for showers, thunderstorms and mountain snow later.
