DENVER - The last week of summer is going to feel very summer-like! Temperatures will soar about 5 to 10 degrees above normal for the next three days.
We're expecting warm, sunny days and mild nights. 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.
Temperatures will stay in the mid- to upper 80s both Wednesday and Thursday, with only a 5 to 10% chance of storms on the plains.
Hurricane Odile made landfall over the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula and will gradually weaken and move toward the north this week.. Some of this tropical moisture work its way up from the southwest and increase rain chances by Friday and into the weekend.
We are getting some good reports that 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!
