DENVER - It's going to be warm this week through Thursday, with temperatures 5 to 10 degrees warmer than usual.
Temperatures during the day will be in the mid- to upper 80s, and in the 50s at night. A large high pressure ridge over the Midwest will be in control of our weather through Thursday. This type of pattern tends to block any major storms systems from moving into the central Rockies.
It will be mostly dry statewide through Thursday with just a few mountain showers. Then we have a better chance for showers and storms statewide Friday through Sunday due to tropical moisture from the remnants of Hurricane Odile, which made landfall over the Baja Peninsula and is now weakening over northern Mexico and moving north.
Fall color is coming on strong in the northern and central mountains. We have created some nice resources for you to plan your trip to find aspen gold!
