We are in for a warm and dry (or nearly dry) late summer weekend. Saturday is likely to be the warmer day of the weekend, with high temperatures around 90 (average for Denver and Boulder is around 83-85). This pattern of warm and generally dry weather should continue for at least the next 5 days or so.
Weather will be making the news this weekend, but not in Colorado. Hurricane Harvey will bring dangerous conditions to the mid and lower Gulf Coast of Texas this evening. But it’s impact won’t end this evening. The storm is likely to hang around south Texas for days, somewhat weaker in terms of wind but very wet. Flooding is likely to be historic in some places of southeastern Texas, possibly as far inland as the hill country around San Antonio or Austin.
