If you thought Tuesday felt warm, you’ll be in for a surprise on Wednesday. Temperatures will peak about 15 degrees above the average. Sunshine and the warm weather will have it feeling more like the first day of class, not midterms! You’ll need a jacket for the early morning. Wear shorts, though, or you’ll be roasting during the afternoon.
Wednesday will near the record high temperature for October 15, but beating it looks unlikely. Either way, it’s still going to be quite warm! The previous record was set back in 2011.
After an unseasonably warm Wednesday, temperatures will cool a bit for Thursday. The bulk of the heat will shift off to the east, and that will allow for a few more clouds Thursday. Sometime Friday morning, a cool front will move through northern Colorado. This will mark a return to more normal temperatures on Friday and Saturday, but no rain or snow is expected with this front. Sunday and the beginning of next week will likely see a return of the warm, sunny weather.
