A cold front brought some chilly weather to Denver, the Front Range and the eastern plains. Low clouds hung over much of northeastern Colorado with highs only in the 50s to low 60s in the Denver area and just in the 40s farther to the northeast.

The front stalled over the Continental Divide, keeping the cool air over eastern Colorado. The mountains and western valleys were much warmer with highs in the 70s in the mountains and 80s in the Grand Junction area.

It will get quite a bit warmer this weekend as the front slides off to the east of Colorado early Saturday.  Expect sunny to partly cloudy skies and highs in the 80s for Denver both Saturday and Sunday. The mountains will be dry, with highs in the 60s to low 70s. 

The aspens remain pretty in the mountains! The southern mountain areas will be reaching peak color for the next five to seven days. Northern and central areas are past peak, but still feature some pretty pockets of color.

Monday will be a warm and dry day with highs in the low 80s in Denver. The weather should be delightful Monday evening for the Bronco game. Temperatures will be in the mid 70s at kickoff and drop to the upper 50s in the fourth quarter.

A storm system will move into Colorado on Tuesday with clouds and showers Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning.  This storm will actually be the remnants of Hurricane Rosa, currently swirling in the eastern Pacific off of Mexico!
