Summary

Aside from a few light mountain showers on Monday and Tuesday, we’ll see dry weather through the week and likely into the upcoming weekend, and temperatures will be warm. Active weather will be confined to western Canada (snow!) and the southeast United States (Hurricane Florence).

Short Term Forecast

This past weekend brought a few light showers to the mountains, and the highest elevations saw a few snowflakes.

Here is a gorgeous photo sent in by a reader who hiked Torreys Peak on Sunday morning. Notice the dusting of snow at the summit.

Monday and Tuesday will bring similar weather to this past weekend. Expect a few light showers, mainly over the southern half of Colorado.

Then Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday should be completely dry and warm with temperatures in the 90s at the lower elevations of eastern and western Colorado and 70s to 80s in the mountain valleys.

Outside of Colorado, the big weather story this week will be Hurricane Florence. The storm should make landfall in either South Carolina or North Carolina on late Thursday or early Friday.

All forecasts show that the Hurricane will be strong, and could slow down as it moves inland, which could lead to incredibly high rain totals and lots of flooding. Hope for the best but prepare for the worst!

Extended Forecast

The 10-day outlook shows benign weather over the central-western United States.

The precipitation forecast with just light showers over Colorado.

The snow forecast, with significant snow over western Canada this week.

The longest-range models haven’t changed over the weekend, which means that I do not see any state-wide cold spells with significant snow through the end of September.

Thanks for reading … next update on Wednesday, September 12!
