DENVER (KDVR) — Friday was another warm September day in Denver weather as the temperature topped 80 degrees again, which is just a little above the average high of 77 degrees.

There will be some cloud cover that slips across the northern border, but those clouds will move out by sunrise on Saturday.
It’ll be cold Friday night in the Colorado mountains especially the northwest corner of the state which is under a Freeze Warning.
Weather tomorrow: Sunny, breezy and seasonal
Plenty of sunshine is expected for the start of fall on Saturday.
Temperatures will cool slightly in the wake of an overnight cold front. It will be in the cooler 60s in the mountains and more seasonal 70s across metro Denver and the Front Range.
The warmest part of the state will be the southeast corner, and even there it will be a little cooler than previous days.
Looking ahead: A dry and warm stretch
The weather pattern for the next week and through the end of September looks dry. There will be plenty of sunshine each day through Friday of next week.
