DENVER — Another round of fall weather has arrived in Colorado. Rain showers began in metro Denver Tuesday evening and will continue into Wednesday.

High temperatures will plunge 25 degrees from 90 on Tuesday to 65 on Wednesday. The wind will gust to better than 25 mph at times.

Some spots could get as much as 1″ of needed rain by late Wednesday. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for the Waldo Canyon Fire area through Wednesday. A flood watch is also up for much of the western and southwestern parts of the state.

A Winter Storm Watch is in effect for the central and southern mountains where 8″ of snow could fall at elevations above 11,000 feet.

Temperatures are going to quickly cool into the 60s Wednesday. We will slowly dry out on Thursday with just a few showers leftover as temperatures return to the 70s.

Then it’s on to sunny and warmer days for your weekend as we get back into the hot 80s.
