2DENVER (CBS4) – Wednesday saw the temperature top out at 92 degrees officially at the airport and 93 downtown for another hot September day. No storms for Denver or the eastern plains but they were more numerous over southwestern Colorado. That will continue and those storms will spread into northern parts of the state as the tropical disturbance off Baja California continues to pump moisture into the southwesterly flow pushing into the state. Because of that, the forecast for Denver will include a greater chance for showers and storms on Thursday and a cooler high in the mid to upper 80s – still a bit warmer than the average high of 84 degrees for this time of year.
Scattered storms will continue in the forecast late each day for Friday and Saturday with highs in the mid 80s. Drier on Sunday with a high back in the mid 80s. For the Labor Day Holiday – partly cloudy skies with a pleasant high right around 80 degrees. Looking at Tuesday and Wednesday of next week: isolated late storms return to the forecast with autumn-like highs in the mid to upper 70s!
