DENVER — A generally quiet weather pattern is setting up for the central Rockies with just a few weak weather fronts slipping across the region over the next few days.
Skies will clear overnight with lows in the upper 40s to low 50s on the plains and upper 30s to low 40s in the mountains.
Thursday will be a little warmer again under mostly sunny skies to start. Highs will return to the mid to upper 80s for lower elevations, with 70s in the mountains. We'll see more storms in the mountains tomorrow and there is a slight chance that a few storms will roll east over the Denver metro area.
Friday through the weekend will turn slightly cooler and remain dry — just beautiful mid-September weather! Highs in the 70s for Denver with plenty of sunshine. In the mountains, expect 60s to low 70s and bright blue skies!
The aspen leaves are beginning to change in the mountains, but they are a little late this season so far. The cool and wet spring has apparently delayed the foliage a bit, but it will not be long before the aspen trees begin to really glow in the high country! Here's where to go to see the beautiful fall foliage .
