Denver weather today: Showers and storms possible most of the weekend

Denver is in for some cooler fall weather this weekend with rain possibilities and temperatures in the mid to low 70s.

Friday will be a little warmer than the weekend, but the cold front that moves into the area today will drop Friday’s temperatures about three degrees cooler than Thursday.

It has a high of 79 degrees, but it also has the highest possibility of showers and storms with a 50% chance before midnight.

The showers will begin in the mountains north of Interstate 70 before some make their way east into the Urban Corridor and the plains in the afternoon.

The stronger storms could produce light to moderate rain, wind gusts up to 40 mph and small hail. The showers should decrease across the region overnight, then some more rain could move through the area Saturday and Sunday.

Saturday’s high temperature will be 71 degrees, and Sunday’s will be 74 degrees.

Low temperatures through the weekend will stay right around 50 degrees.

And for those making any trips to the mountains to see the fall colors, which some mountain dwellers predict will peak over the weekend, the mountains north of Interstate 70 will see low temperatures in the 20s and high temperatures in the 50s and 60s.

Rain showers and some thunderstorms are likely throughout the weekend there, and there is a 30% chance snow could even fall overnight Friday and Saturday morning near Rocky Mountain National Park.
