Another new product today! I’ll be doing brief weekly weather write-ups on Sundays and/or Mondays for those that wanted something to be posted on a more regular basis. These will be known as “Five Day Forecasts” and will actually include an outlook for the foreseeable future past five days as well. Let me know if there’s anything that you’d like to see in them and I’ll do my best to accommodate your request!

It’s definitely cold outside this morning as temperatures hover in the 40s for most of the state and fresh snow that fell over the weekend blankets the highest mountain peaks. We are certainly living up to the Autumn season after the first official day of meteorological Fall occurred last Thursday the 22nd. A brief respite from cooler temperatures will come again this week, but will transition into cooler temperatures this weekend and early next week. However, our temperatures continue to be above the daily averages this year and we won’t see any big cool downs in the foreseeable future.

Next Five Days

Today- Abundant sun will help us see highs in the mid-70s around town today before cooling down to the mid-40s tonight under clear skies.

Tomorrow (Tuesday)- After a day of recovery from cool temperatures on Monday, highs for the Denver Metro area will be in the upper 70s and low 80s with a few stray clouds. Low temperatures at night will reflect the slight warming trend and will be in the low 50s.

Wednesday- Very similar to Tuesday with highs in the upper 70s and low 80s, mostly clear skies, and lows around 50 degrees.

Thursday- A few more clouds will build into the region as our next small weather system begins to arrive in Colorado. Highs will again be in the upper 70s and low 80s and our overnight lows will be in the mid-50s.

Friday- A low pressure system entering the state will make its way to the eastern plains and will bring a small chance of rain and thunderstorms with it. We’ll see an increase in clouds over Thursday and will have highs that are a few degrees cooler in the mid to upper 70s.


Extended Forecast

This upcoming weekend we’ll see another cool down similar to the one that we had this past Saturday and Sunday, but with one notable difference. Based off of the current model runs, the next storm system that comes into the state on Thursday will intensify on the eastern plains until it continues on its path on Monday. However, there is indication of a second storm system that will immediately follow the first one! Between these two systems, we could be looking at a few light rainy days from Saturday through Tuesday of next week. One thing is certain, we are beginning to see weather patterns that are indicative of active fall and winter weather rather than the ones that produce our boring summer weather!


As always, let me know how I can improve these posts and if you’d like me to cover anything specific.

Thanks for reading!
