DENVER — A warm and dry end to summer with high temperatures in the low 80s across the Denver metro area and 60s to low 70s in the mountains.
Winds and clouds will increase ahead of a cold front that will slide across the state tonight. Fire danger will be elevated south of the Denver area, from Leadville to Colorado Springs, down to the border. The Red Flag Warning expires at 7 p.m. Friday.
Fall officially starts early Saturday at 12:50 a.m. and the weather will feel right for the new season thanks to the passing cold front.
Temperatures cool slightly over the weekend with highs back in the upper 70s Saturday and around 80 degrees on Sunday.
In the mountains, expect morning lows in the 30s and daytime highs in the mid 60s to low 70s.
The Aspen trees are changing colors - especially across northern and central Colorado, so the next few weeks will provide some very lovely scenes. Get out there and enjoy!
Warmer weather will return next week with highs in the 80s and plenty of sunshine!
