After a wet few days the weather pattern is timed to give us a dry weekend with seasonable temperatures. Saturday may get off to a frosty start in some parts of northeastern Colorado and the Front Range, but then warm to 60 or a few degrees warmer in low elevation areas.
The next cold front next week (probably Tuesday) is not looking very moist, but it may bring in an air mass that results in widespread freezes for eastern Colorado. Right now the chances for precipitation look small, but if that changes it would likely be snow at lower elevations than we saw this week.
The big weather news this weekend will likely be from the exceptionally intense Hurricane Patricia making landfall today on Mexico’s Pacific coast. It’s intense, but small in size. The remnants of Patricia are likely to spread flooding rains up into Texas by Sunday.
