Friday, October 3, 2014, NOON.
Early autumn is often (but not always) a nice time of year after the summer thunderstorms but before the winter snow. The next 5 days will live up to that reputation with dry weather statewide, cool mornings, and mild afternoons. Temperatures should be near average which is around 70 in the Denver-Boulder area and 50s at Nederland’s elevation.
The “water year” which runs October through September ended a few days ago with 23.19 inches of precipitation in Boulder for the year. That’s just a little above the 30-year average (1984-2013) of 21.03 inches.
