DENVER — The atmosphere is tilting toward a cooler-than-normal August for the eastern half of Colorado, including Denver, Boulder and Fort Collins.

The weather pattern moving in this weekend is a good example of what to expect for the remainder of August.

The jet stream is buckling with cold fronts sliding into Colorado. Each cold front delivers cooler air, and higher chances for rain and thunderstorms.

Denver’s normal high starts at 90 on Aug. 1 and ends at 84 on Aug. 31.

The cooler-than-normal outlook also includes the foothills and Continental Divide. That could mean a better chance for snow versus rain.
