look who got hot today, lamar 95. up in the mountains, in the 60s, 70s, and 80s. here outside the 9 backyard, like we said a little bit of a breeze. we're at 77. a lot of places in and around denver very well could have hit 80. we cleared out before dia did, and down to our south, we've got enough moisture to support showers and thunderstorms. nothing is severe, but you can its way into the mountains, and also across parts of southeast colorado, pushing in towards lamar. these showers producing brief periods of heavy rain, some lightning. they'll fizzle out by this evening, with most of the rain falling over the mountains, as the night continues. in fact, out to our west, we actually have a marginal to slight risk for strong storms that's going to extend from western colorado, all the way
coming our way, strong winds, and some rain. it makes me nervous as to how long these beautiful leaves can hang on. this beautiful puckture of kenosha pass. it just looks stunning. with a lot of wind in store out for our mountains, and all of that rain headed this way, we'll see how things do. central mountains will be seeing their peak through this weekend. southern mountains expecting the aspen to peak as we get increase tonight, and into tomorrow. here across the front range, we're not expecting strong winds to hit until after about 9:00 in the morning. then from then on, we could see gusts get up to 30 miles an hour. that will last until 9:00 p.m., then winds die down, and we see that cooler air start to settle in. out to our west, high wind warnings, and wind advisories are in effect all the way through 6:00 a.m. friday.

approaches, fully arrives saturday, and into sunday, so at that time look for highs to drop into the 60s, and that may cause some very chilly temperatures across the san louise valley. those areas under a freeze watch from friday night, i should say, all the way through saturday morning. lows tonight, dropping into the middle to upper 50s. 60s in the eastern plains. 40s for the mountains. we're looking at winds breezy out of the southwest from 5 to 15 miles per we might see an isolated shower here or two. 80 the high again. windy, warm, isolated showers will be possible and then we cool off behind some of that rain. 69 on saturday. with a couple of showers in the foothills. might get a sprinkle or two on sunday. the chance pretty low. 62, and sunday morning, for the race for the cure should be dry. but at 8:00 a.m., for the fun run, we've got temperatures in
