DENVER — From recovery in the south to changing weather, here's what you need to know to start your Tuesday morning. 

1. Fall is approaching!
In just 11 days, fall will be upon us. It might not seem plausible with the warm summer temps, but you'd better believe Halloween is just around the corner.

2. Irma is a topical depression
Millions are still recovering from the devastation that hurricanes Irma and Harvey left behind. Millions are still without power, but cleanup continues.

3. Denver7 telethon raises $28K
With the help of Colorado, Denver7 and the Red Cross raised $28,670 for the victims of both Harvey and Irma.

4. Travel ban deadline
Challengers have until noon today to file arguments on the president's travel ban. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy issued a temporary stay on the ban on Monday, which put it on hold. The court will hear the full case next month.

5. Warm again today
Temperatures will be close to 90 degrees today. Rain chances will remain rather low, with just a few late afternoon thunderstorms - mainly over the central and southern mountains.
