Denver, Colorado

Today we take a peek at what Denver is going to see as we head into the holiday weekend!

At 1053pm MDT, the temperature at Denver, CO was 72 degrees under mostly cloudy skies. An area of low pressure is starting to develop over the Four Corners region and shifts into the Central Plains by midday Friday. It’s not a particularly strong system, but does look to kick some some activity over the Front Range. Chances of it look to be over southern Colorado, largely sparing the Denver area as we kick off our weekend. Another piece of energy looks to develop over the Southern Rockies and shift into the Central Plains Saturday afternoon, and this system gives a better chance at kicking up some scattered activity in the Denver vicinity. Either way, temperatures will be noticeably cooler for Saturday so if those storms stay away, it looks to be a gorgeous day!
