KUSA - Low clouds, fog and sprinkles to start the day but drier air has been working in all afternoon on the back side of our departing weather system.

Under partly cloudy skies, afternoon temperatures warmed into the mid 70s with only isolated foothill showers to worry about.

Flood Warnings continue across northeastern Colorado including the South Platte, Cache La Poudre and Arkansas.

Light snow was reported above 11,000 feet in this the last week of summer. The autumnal equinox occurs on Sunday!

Fair skies and light winds heading into the evening with cool lows in the 30s and 40s in the mountains, lower to middle 50s along the Front Range and across the metro area.

Monday was the start of the warming and drying trend that will see us under mostly sunny skies Tuesday and above average highs in the mid 80s. An even warmer day is forecast Wednesday ahead of a weak, dry cool front which will bring temperatures back down into the lower and middle 70s Thursday.

Sunshine and 80s return for Friday and the weekend.
