DENVER —  A minor storm system is rolling through the region today.  The storm system consists of moisture moving northward from Arizona and New Mexico and a push of  cooler air moving down from the Northern Plains.

Colorado will be caught in between these two weak weather-makers. Mostly cloudy across the Front Range, with some rain continuing across areas south and east of Denver. 

Cooler weather can be expected with highs in the middle 50s to low 60s in Denver and across the southeast plains.  Farther north, highs will be in the mid to upper 60s in Fort Collins and Greeley.

Expect the brunt of the moisture from this storm to pass to the south and east of Denver, with much of the eastern plains getting .25" to .50" of rain through Wednesday afternoon.  Areas farther to the north will get only a trace to around a tenth of an inch of rain.

The mountains south of I-70 will get a mix of rain and snow, with 1 to 3 inches possible above 10,000 feet for the San Juans, the Sawatch Range, the Sangre de Cristo and Wet Mountains. 

This weak storm will clear out early Thursday with highs in the mid 60s on Thursday and near 70 on Friday under a mostly sunny sky. In the mountains, temperatures will be in the 50s to near 60 degrees during the day and upper 20s to mid 30s at night.

Next weekend will stay dry and mild, but the long range forecast is for colder and wetter weather to arrive by the end of the month. Halloween could be cold with rain and snow!
