DENVER — Highs on Tuesday again climbed into the low 90s across the plains, with 70s in Colorado's high country. Much cooler weather will move into the state Wednesday as a cold front slides down from the north and meets with increasing moisture from the south.
This next system will really cool things off on Wednesday with highs in the low 60s. Rainy and cool weather will remain through Thursday. Some areas of southwestern and central Colorado could get 2 to 3 inches of rain! Denver and the northeast plains will likely see a good soaking too, with up to an inch of rain.
Skies will clear out on Friday and set the stage for a really nice first weekend of Autumn - the season will begin officially at 7:03 PM on Thursday. Friday through Sunday should be dry, mild and very pleasant! The weather looks terrific for the Bronco game Sunday night with clear skies and mild temperatures in the low 70s at kickoff.
The annual golden display of aspen are starting with splashes of color dotting Colorado's mountainsides. The short, but beloved, leaf peeping season has begun. The leaves will be peaking in colors in the northern and central mountains over the next two weeks. Click here for our leaf peeping guide.
