Friday Update: Snow Favors Southern Colorado — Although technically two separate systems are imapacting Colorado, as discussed in Wednesday's post, only one holds the cards for possible precipitation. The upper low meandering over the southwestern US and Mexico will continue to provide rain and snow to Arizona and New Mexico.

Watching a weekend system(s) — After nearly breaking two record highs Monday and Tuesday, we are transitioning today to a cooler, more "January-like" end to the week. A massive ridge provided the recent warm weather, and this ridge will be tough to break down much. So, this next system won't bring a major change.

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.

WATCH LIVE: Perseid meteor shower should be at its peak tonight — The year's best meteor shower should be tonight and in the wee hours of Wednesday. "The problem is the nearly full moon -- with 92 percent illumination -- is going to create so much light, that it'll be very hard to see the dozens of meteors per hour.

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.
