Saturday's First Warning Forecast: Gloomy, with scattered showers and storms

Overnight, it will be mostly cloudy, with maybe a few areas seeing patchy fog. High pressure passes overhead, keeping us under mostly sunny skies and seasonable warmth. High: 95. Wind: S/SE 5-10 miles per hour.

Then comes the Labor Day weekend, the unofficial end to the summer season and a weekend we all hope will feature one last hurrah of warm and dry summer weather. Light and variable wind.

While the cold front that drops across eastern Colorado late Monday will have little impact on western temperatures, it may help bring more moisture to the southeast San Juan mountains.

WEDNESDAY: Sunny and cooler. Wind: S 5-10. Low: 70.

More warm, sunny days are expected Thursday and Friday, with highs in the low- to mid-80s with abundant sunshine. Light northwest wind becoming north 6 to 11 miles per hour in the afternoon. Labor Day Monday will feature summer-like weather with lots of sun and temperatures returning to the 80s. The good news is that sunshine and warmer temperatures arrive for Labor Day.

Saturday: Widespread smoke. Sunny and hot, with a high near 99. Wind: N/NE 10-15 miles per hour.

Clouds will increase during the afternoon and a few showers will start to show up. Lows will be in the lower 70s with a 20 percent chance of rain.

This will help push the temperature into at least the upper 70s.

Sunday night: Mostly clear with a low around 69. High: 94. Wind: S/SE 5-10 miles per hour.

After an overnight low around 53, Friday should be sunny, with a high near 70 and east winds at 5 to 10 miles per hour. There is a slight chance that storms could become strong to severe. The morning will be chilly though, starting off in the lower 50s.
