Weekend Weather Forecast

Published Friday, February 26, 2016

A warm and dry weekend is on tap for southeast Colorado, and will extend into Monday.

High temperatures will range from the mid-60s to mid-70s, with evening temperatures falling to the mid-20s to low 30s.

Winds will pick up Saturday night, ranging from 10 to 20 miles per hour. By Sunday, wind gusts to 30 mph are possible.

A fast-moving upper level disturbance starting Saturday will produce a period of high fire danger into Sunday morning, with the worst conditions located west of Kiowa County. With warmer temperatures and strong wind, outdoor burning should still be avoided throughout the weekend.

There is a slight chance of rain/snow starting Monday night and continuing into Tuesday, however little precipitation is currently expected.
