Temperatures will reach the upper 70s Wednesday as Denver heats up halfway through the week.
The high Wednesday is 77, and it’ll only get warmer before the weekend. The above-normal temperatures will continue through Saturday when a cold front blows through to cool things off and possibly brings some light snow to the area.

Warm, dry winds Wednesday will reach up to 35 mph, adding to near-critical fire dangers in much of the plains.
Forecasters at the National Weather Service warn this could lead to rapid fire spread and advises residents to avoid any burning or outdoor activities that may produce a spark and start a wildfire.
In addition to the gusty winds, humidity in the area will fall into the teens and increase the fire danger.
The winds will decrease around sunset and temperatures will fall to about 42 degrees Wednesday night.
Thursday looks to be the warmest day of the week now, with temperatures reaching a high of 79 degrees. Friday and Saturday will also be in the mid to upper 70s before Sunday cools to a nice 62-degree high. Lows all week will continue to be in the mid 40s.
