DENVER (CBS4) – Tuesday brought in slightly cooler air with the first surge of cooler weather: yesterday Denver reached 93, today was just 6 degrees cooler when we reached 87. Now another surge of cool air pushes through the state overnight and that will result in highs dropping into the low to mid 70s for Wednesday and Thursday. Along with that we can expect a little better chance for storms right on into Friday…and Friday’s high will be near 80 degrees.
Many showers and storms have been heavy over the southwest and that has resulted in a Flash Flood Watch until 10pm Tuesday night. At some of the higher elevations, snow or rain mixed with snow has been recorded – up to a few inches in some areas.
As the weekend approaches we will begin to dry out and warm up: scattered storms Saturday, high in the low 80s; only isolated storms Sunday with a high in the mid 80s.
