Storm brings snow to Colorado high country

DENVER — Afternoon temperatures have been in the 70s and 80s for almost all of September, but that all changed Friday when snow arrived at the higher elevations in the mountains.

A storm system moving over the Colorado mountains arrived in Denver and moved onto the eastern Plains.

The high temperature on Saturday is expected to be in the upper 60s. On Sunday, temperatures will top out in the lower 60s, nearly 20 degrees cooler than last Sunday.

Of course, this is Colorado, so while you might want a sweatshirt, you can still get away with shorts and flip flops. Overnight temperatures in the metro area will fall to the lower 40s.

Stray showers are possible, but it will be mainly dry, making it an excellent time to go for a hike or a drive to check out Colorado’s fall colors.

If you’re heading up to the high country, expect temperatures in the upper 40s and 50s — possibly even lower near Aspen.
