However, summertime heat returns for the weekend with highs around 90 and we’ll stay in the warm mid 80s for Monday. Then, a strengthening trough along with a strong cold front pushes through the state dropping our temperatures into the 60s in Denver for our first real taste of fall.
We will, however, recover to the 80s again by Thursday.
