DENVER - A mostly clear and mild start to the day is expected. We are waking up to temperatures in the upper-50s to low-60s. By lunchtime, mostly sunny skies will continue, but a few clouds will start to build and move into the Front Range. By noon we will see those temperatures in the low-80s and highs will top off in the upper-80s later this afternoon.
Tomorrow more moisture moves into the state and an approaching system will bring unsettled weather to Colorado. We will expect more storms to develop Friday afternoon with highs holding in the 80s.
Cooler air will move into the state by this weekend. On Saturday our chance for rain decreases to only 20% and highs will barely touch the low-80s. Sunday looks to be even cooler! Afternoon highs by the second half of the weekend and into the start of next week will struggle to get out of the 70s! It will definitely start to feel a little more fall-like out there!
Some widely scattered showers and thunderstorms will accompany this change in the pattern Saturday into early next week. To our north, we would not be too surprised to see some early snow fall in the mountains of Idaho and Montana by early Sunday!
The weekend into early next week will be rather pleasant for Colorado! Temperatures will feel more like mid September with highs in the 60s in the mountains and 70s to low 80s on the plains. Rain chances should stay fairly low, in the 10-20% range.
