Warmer than average temperatures will be around Saturday-Sunday with lower elevations of the Front Range reaching around 80. Temperatures are likely to be 10-15 degrees cooler on Monday, but that is still close to the seasonal average. No rain is expected. Warmer is expected again on Tuesday.
We may be seeing an increasing tendency for gusty west winds in and near the Front Range on Sunday. Then those winds are likely to turn more to the northwest Sunday night into early Monday and spread throughout eastern Colorado with the cooler temperatures.
The average dates for first freeze, and the average dates for first measurable snow, at most lower elevations in the Front Range region (from Colorado Springs northward) tend to be between October 5th and 20th. It’s not looking like we are setting up for a first snow anytime soon. Tuesday may bring the coldest morning so far this season, but widespread freezes appear unlikely.
