Nice now, but changes are coming!

Warm and dry Friday, then cooler

The lovely weather will linger for Friday, but we are tracking a 20 degree cool down by Saturday and the mountains could pick up a little snow!

Warm and dry conditions will continue across Colorado Friday, with highs in the 70s to near 80 degrees across the Metro Area and northeastern Colorado.  The mountains will have highs in the 50s to low 60s. Winds will be increasing out of the southwest so fire danger will be higher, but there are no fire weather warnings posted at this time.

The winds will be picking up ahead of a cold front heading our way from the Pacific Northwest.  This front will bring a chance for some rain showers on Saturday, but the showers will be pretty scattered on the plains.  The northern mountains will pick up a few inches of snow above 9,000 feet. 

Highs will only be in the upper 50s to low 60s on Saturday in Denver and across eastern Colorado. The mountains will be cool, especially along and north of I-70 with highs in the mid to upper 40s. 

The temperatures will  pop back to the upper 60s to low 70s on Sunday.  The mild and dry pattern will continue for next week as a west-northwesterly JET STREAM flow will continue to block the coldest air in central Canada.

The overall weather pattern will not revert to stormy until the jet stream gets a little stronger and moves a bit farther to the south.  It appears that a chance for snow and colder weather will arrive by the end of October or the first few days of November.
