<DENVER (CBS4) – Gusty high based showers and thunderstorms cooled off temperatures across northern Colorado on Saturday. With wind gusts kicking up anywhere from 15 to 40 mph in and around northern parts of the state. Before the clouds and the showers moved in Denver managed to make it to 87 degrees for the Saturday afternoon high.
On the weather map an area of high pressure over Arizona pushed in the warmer air and high based moisture to create a hot and stormy start to the Labor Day Weekend. On Sunday, the tail end of a cold front that stretches into Canada will push through the state. This should cool temperatures down and still provide a burst of moisture for more gusty afternoon thunderstorms across northern Colorado.
