Great looking Labor Day Weekend!

A few showers to start the weekend

DENVER - The winds are beginning to grow stronger at the jet stream level and will help drive a cold front into Colorado this weekend.  This front will bring a cooling trend to the region, with scattered showers and thunderstorms expected as the front moves through the region.

Saturday will feature a few more storms, with highs in the mid 80s.  Behind this weekend's front, temperatures will drop a bit and skies will clear.  On Sunday and Labor Day,  expect highs to stay around 80 degrees with mostly sunny skies. In the mountains, plan on some chilly nights with low to mid 30s early Sunday and Monday. Highs in the mountains will be in the 60s to low 70s.

The air coming in behind the front will be drier, so rain chances will be low for the second part of the holiday weekend. We might get some more of that smoke flowing back into our skies as the winds behind the front will swirl into Colorado from the northwest.

There will be a minor upper air disturbance zipping over Colorado on Tuesday. This will bring a slight chance for showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon. Highs will be in the upper 70s for Denver, with 60s in the mountains.

The weather should stay quite comfortable for the middle of next week as the northwest flow aloft will bring some Canadian air into the central Rockies.  Highs will stay in the low 80s on the plains and 60s to low 70s in the mountains.

As we enter the first weekend of September, it will not be long before early reports of fall color begin to arrive in the 7News Weather Center - keep your eyes open for the first glimpses of aspen gold!
