A white Christmas in Denver is hard to come by — DENVER - With Denver's weather pattern so warm and so dry, a white Christmas in Denver is feeling more and more out of reach with each passing day. Temperatures running far warmer than average for the start of December, with the warmest day recorded at 64 degrees, so far, and more 60s still possible.

This October, one of hottest and least snowy ever — DENVER - October has been unusually warm, and dry. This won't change as we close out the month this week. For Denver, the month has set two record highs and is nearly 5-degrees warmer than average. Although there have been a few colder systems to move through, there have only been two days of freezing temperatures.

Where to find great fall colors around Colorado: Mid-September 2014 edition — DENVER - Leaves are changing color quickly now across the state. The change is slightly ahead of schedule thanks to the near record cold felt the second week of September. Don't worry, you still have plenty of time to catch the colors through the end of September and early October.

First cold snow of year on the way, some snow too — DENVER - Cold and snow, for some, is on the way this week. The rain showers Tuesday and Wednesday are part of one of two systems to impact the week. The second, a cold one, moves in by Thursday and will be felt the most on Friday.

Longmont looks to improve, not just recover, from last year's flooding — LONGMONT, Colo. - Although flooding isn't rare to Longmont, the September flood was a 500-year type of event. Both the Left Hand and the St. Vrain Creeks run through the city, and both ran over their banks. As the St.

Supermoon: Yes, it does really look supersized Sunday — DENVER - The moon is more than just the moon this weekend, it's super-sized. Well, in appearance that is. Thankfully, the weather will cooperate enough that most all of Colorado will have a clear enough sky to sneak at least a peek at it.

Fire threat remains low, but that can change quickly with drier weather — PIKE NATIONAL FOREST, Colo. - Colorado has had a relatively quiet fire season for 2014. Thankfully, a good snowpack from the winter and consistent rains this summer have kept that danger low. You may think it has been a "rainy" Colorado summer, but it's actually been an "average" summer of rain amounts and temperatures.

Lightning strike may have ignited Broomfield house fire — BROOMFIELD, Colo. - A mother and her 7-year-old son safely escaped a Broomfield house fire that may have been caused by a lightning strike. At about 1:50 p.m., the mother and son noticed smoke near a window of their home at 3771 Troon Circle.

Colorado ranks 7th for number of tornadoes — DENVER - No state is immune from tornadoes, especially Colorado. All 50 states have had them, and Colorado is high on that list, ranked 7th for most tornadoes per year. Sure, most of those tornadoes happen on Colorado's plains. Weld County has had more than 250 tornadoes in the past 60 years, that's more than any other county in the US.
