DENVER — Colorado weather in mid-September is often the best of the year! Warm days, comfortable nights and the beginning of the annual gilded glory of the aspens in the high country!
The scattered showers of the past few days have been the result of some tropical moisture left over from what was once Hurricane Kay. The showers have been diminishing each day and will be pretty much out of the state on Saturday - just a few may pop up in the afternoon.
Warmer and drier weather will move back in for most of the coming weekend. Highs will be in the upper70s to low 80s on Saturday for Denver and the eastern plains, with upper 50s to middle 60s in the mountains.
Warmer weather is expected Sunday with highs in the upper 80s to near 90 degrees. The weather for the Bronco's home opener will be terrific with sunny skies and temperatures in the 80s.
The aspens are now changing color, keep an eye out for the gold! The leaves will be peaking in colors in the northern and central mountains over the next two weeks.
Monday will be dry and very warm with highs in the lower 90s - perhaps the last 90 degree temperatures for 2022 in Denver.
Tuesday will still be quite warm, but clouds will begin to increase as some moisture moves back into Colorado from the southwest. Highs will be in the upper 80s.
Wednesday and Thursday will be cooler with a better chance for showers.
