DENVER — Scattered showers and thunderstorms have developed over Denver and the I-25 Corridor. The storms are producing brief burst of heavy rain and lots of lightning and thunder.  The storms will end early tonight and skies will become partly cloudy by Midnight.  Lows will be in the mid 50s early Saturday morning.  In the mountains, a few storms will end tonight with lows in the 40s.

The weather pattern will begin to change over the the holiday weekend as a weak cold front moves across on Saturday with an increase in clouds and a chance for showers and thunderstorms. Highs will dip a bit with highs in the low 80s in Denver and across the plains. The mountains will be cooler with showers likely and highs in the 60s.

Showers and thunderstorms will be likely on Sunday with even cooler temperatures. Highs will only be in the mid to upper 70s in Denver, with 50s and 60s in the mountains. By the way, the leaves are changing in the high country, so expect to see some early aspen glory this weekend!

The weather pattern will still be a bit showery on Labor Day with highs around 80 degrees. In the mountains, some showers can be expected with highs in the 60s to low 70s.

Tuesday will be a little drier across Colorado with 80s for lower elevations and 70s in the mountains.

More showers and thunderstorms will be possible by next Wednesday and Thursday.
