.DAY ONE…Today and Tonight

There will be areas of low clouds and patchy fog across the
northeast plains of Colorado through the mid morning hours.
Visibilities may be restricted to under a quarter of a mile in a
few spots, especially near the Wyoming border.

Today will be drier and slightly warmer with only isolated showers
and thunderstorm over the mountains and higher terrain areas
across the Palmer Divide. The airmass will be too stable over the

winds with the showers and storms.

Very hot temperatures are expected on Sunday and Monday. Highs
will reach the low to mid 90s on Sunday and the mid to upper 90s
across lower elevations. The fire danger will be high on Labor
Day, especially over higher terrain. A stray storm cannot be ruled
out on Sunday but the vast majority of locations will be dry.

A cold front is expected to move through on Tuesday, providing a
break from the heat and increasing the chances for rain.
Lingering moisture will allow for scattered storms to form Wednesday.
Temperatures warm back toward the 90s in Denver on Thursday and
Friday with isolated storms mainly over the mountains.


Spotter activation is not anticipated today or tonight.
