Cool 60s for last day of summer, sunny and warmer first day of fall

Overnight rain and cold temps in the 30s and 40s gave way to a sunny but brisk Tuesday with below average highs in the 60s. Sunshine and 80s for first days of fall.

COLORADO, USA — Forecast by: Meteorologist Kathy Sabine

THIS EVENING AT A GLANCE: More sunshine and cool weather Tuesday for the last full day of Summer. Afternoon highs in the mid 60s, ten to fifteen degrees below the average of 78 degrees.

Cool and calm this evening with light winds. Temperatures will drop out of the mid 60s after sunset into the 50s. Forecast lows could go back down into the 30s and 40s for some areas again tonight, freeze and frost advisories posted for some areas.   

The Autumnal Equinox and start of Fall  officially begins at 1:20 p.m. on Wednesday and the temperatures warm back into the 80s. Calm and quiet weather for the next few days under a strong high-pressure ridge that will keep us in fair conditions with temperatures slightly above normal. 

The only exception will be Friday when a weak cold front sweeps through and cools us back to seasonal norms, which would put us in the upper 70s. Then back to sunshine with our high temperatures staying in the mid 80s through the weekend.
