By Dave Aguilera

DENVER (CBS4) –¬†We have a nice summer warming trend that will finish out the season! A flat ridge of high pressure is strengthening over the central and southern Rockies. This will keep cold fronts to the north of Colorado through Thursday. Thursday by the way is the Autumnal Equinox Which arrives at 8:21 AM on September 22nd. The combination of a cold front in Wyoming and high pressure in the southern Rockies will create a strong pressure gradient over northern Colorado with gusty, downslope winds. As a result, there is a Red Flag Warning over the mountains and foothills near the Wyoming state line.
