A cool front Thursday evening and another Friday evening will not only drop our temperatures to very comfortable levels over the weekend but bring back a chance of afternoon showers. We hang out within a few degrees of 80F for the next 10 days (for highs) with a system that might drop significant rain over the region Tuesday and Wednesday next week.
Thursday was one more quite warm day. A trough (in the upper atmosphere) kicked down a weak front in the afternoon cooling us a couple of degrees for Friday. Another front cools us about 8-10F Friday going into Saturday. There are small rain chances/thunder shower chances Thursday, Friday, and Saturday afternoon's. Next week we hover around 80F (still above normal for these dates) with a better rain chance mid-late next week.
Our first cold front is moving in to knock 5F off the temperatures and give the western slopes some rain/thundershowers. We'll mainly see increased clouds east of the Rockies with a possible sprinkle. A couple of additional cool fronts will lower us to the 70'sF for highs over the weekend with afternoon showers possible. Next week seems dominated by 70'sF weather for highs and better rain chances.
We say goodby to upper 80'sF after Tuesday. A pretty strong cold front slides across Colorado Tuesday afternoon/evening. The western slopes will see rain and thundershowers over the next week, but the eastern Plains won't see much. The higher elevations will pick up a bit of snow over the next 5 days; really up high, and just a bit.

What looks to be the last gasp of Summer occurs Saturday through Tuesday this week. Mostly dry conditions and above normal temperatures will be the story. Temperatures might make it to 90F at least once more (Sunday and maybe Saturday and Monday). Next week we return to normal temperatures (or or below normal) and see rain chances return.
After a chance of a late evening splash of rain and maybe a rumble of thunder, we remain mostly dry for the next 10 days with above normal temperatures (but not really hot either). Quiet is the word of the day.

Big fronts and little fronts are now going to flow across the state. Tropical moisture will feed into this more unstable environment (with short waves traveling by daily) and we should see rain now and then. We hang out with highs in the 80'sF for the next 8-10 days. Nice.
What Mr. Waters calls a climate crisis.
12pm 9/12 Update: Next Storm/Next Snow Forecast Discussion from the Cherrywood Observatory – September...
A passing shortwave in the northern Rockies may spark isolated severe weather (hail and high winds) north of Denver today. We experience a cold front passage around 3-4pm today (Wednesday) and get to experience another taste of Fall Thursday. We warm to upper 80'sF for the weekend. There is a sign of a big cool down with showers coming to the state middle of next week.
The cold front of Tuesday pulls away and an upper high pressure center passes on Thursday. We warm up 10 F Tuesday to Thursday, then cool with another cool front and a return of tropical moisture/afternoon storms through the weekend.
