It looks like we will have a mild & occasionally wet early autumn weekend. Actually, autumn doesn’t officially begin until 8:29 PM MDT Monday. But Sep-Oct-Nov are considered meteorological autumn, the transition months between the hottest three months and the coldest three months.
The 80+ degree temperatures that we have seen in the low elevations will cool by about 10 degrees Saturday and possibly even a little cooler on Sunday. The chance for some intermittent showers or thundershowers comes back too for the afternoons and evenings. Sunday looks like it will have a better chance for rain than Saturday.
The current pattern will not result in any exceptionally wet, dry, cold, or hot weather through early next week. So it may be a good weekend for aspen peeping and elk watching as long as you prepare for some spells of clouds and rain.
