Close to 80 degrees ahead of storm and mountain snow

A Summer day in Fall with temperatures twenty degrees above average! An approaching storm will bring mountain snow, front range rain showers and cooler weather

COLORADO, USA — FORECAST BY: Meteorologist Kathy Sabine

THIS EVENING AT A GLANCE: A warm start to the week with Summer-like temperatures in the upper 70s and lower 80s! Twenty degrees above average!

We are tracking a Pacific storm that will bring an end to the warm weather and the forecast calls for mountain snow Tuesday. Winter weather and travel advisories have been posted for the mountains for 4-8" of snow.

Lower elevations a mild dry night with gusty winds out of the south. Red Flag Warning are posted for high fire danger across the urban corridor and front range this evening. Windy and warm conditions and low humidity values have created a  fire weather watch. 

Tuesday mountain snow continues with scattered rain showers for Denver and lower elevations. It will be windy at time with highs in the upper 60s and lower 70s.

Wednesday even cooler. Dry and windy midweek with highs in the mid to upper 50s.

A warming trend will take us through the end of the week and start to next weekend when highs will bounce back to the lower 70s.
