DENVER — It's a beautiful and warm start to the week. Expect sunny skies and highs in the upper 80s to low 90s.

In the mountains, it will be mostly sunny, but with areas of patchy smoke over western Colorado from wildfires burning out west. Highs will top out in the 70s to low 80s in the valleys.

Another round of showers and thunderstorms will arrive late Tuesday and Wednesday as the remnants of Tropical Storm Kay — now over southern California — swirls over the central Rockies.

Dry, hot and breezy, with hazy skies over the Denver area tomorrow. Highs will be in the upper 80s to low 90s, nearly 10 degrees above average for this time in September. Scattered storms and showers will develop over the mountains late Tuesday.

Highs return to near average readings, in the low to mid-80s, Wednesday through the end of the week. More storms and showers are likely late Wednesday in Denver.

Despite the recent hot and dry weather, there are reports of the aspen beginning to change color, keep an eye out for those first signs of gold! We'll start to see some peaking colors in the northern and central mountains over the next two weeks.
