The best weather of the year!

Warm and dry and sunny and delightful!

Although the Christmas song claims that the holidays are the "most wonderful time of the year", folks would be hard pressed to call late September anything but wonderful in Colorado!

Bright blue skies, light breezes, warm temperatures by day, cool and comfy at night - just perfect weather!

A large high pressure system is parked right over the central Rockies and will remain anchored to the region for the next several days.  This big high will block any storms from moving into the area and will keep our weather quiet and pleasant.

Temperatures this week will continue to run a few degrees above the average for this time of year with highs in the upper 70s to low 80s on the plains and 60s to low 70s in the high country.

In the mountains, the aspen leaves continue to be lovely in most areas with the peak now in the central and mountains. The northern mountains are a bit past maximum gold, but still are very pretty and the southern mountain areas should still remain very pretty into next week.

A minor storm will swirl into Colorado Thursday and Friday with some scattered showers and thunderstorms - although not a heavy amount of precipitation or wind.

The weekend will be pleasant although slightly cooler ahead of the next more significant storm system.  We will keep a watch on conditions by late Sunday into Monday when a stronger system may impact Colorado.

Remember that our Storm Shield App and Storm Shield Alert Calls can provide important information about approaching severe weather.  Go to or call 877-438-4977 for more information.
