Behind the front it’ll be up to 10 degrees cooler today in Denver and on the northeast plains compared to the highs we saw on Saturday.

Low-level moisture has increased today between Denver and the northeast corner of the state. That will help trigger some showers and thunderstorms with daytime heating.

We will see another cold front approach the state sometime Monday or early Tuesday and it will bring another chance for showers and thunderstorms, along with some cooler air. But it won’t last long. We are right back into dry and hot weather starting Wednesday and that trend will carry us into the upcoming weekend.
