Currently in Denver - September 26, 2022

The weather, currently.

Low 80s and sunny for Monday, September 26th.

The forecast for the start of week looks calm as we remain in the weather pattern that brought us warm and dry weather this weekend. We will continue to be under the influence of that same high pressure for most of the week. So, enjoy the outdoors as much as you can and enjoy the gorgeous weather.

One note, I will be with a very talented and smart group of meteorologists this week as we cover hurricane Ian and it's landfall in the south (most likely Florida). If you are interested in following our coverage, I encourage you to go to Twitter and follow us @currently and me @theweathermegan, and to subscribe to our hurricane newsletter. You can find the list here. We will have all you need to know about activity in the Gulf.

Back to Colorado, here's a look at your Monday forecast:

1) Pretty much like yesterday.

2) Afternoon temperatures in the low 80s with sunshine.

3) Feels like fall y'all!

Activity forecast:

All activities: Just really a gorgeous time to get out and do anything. Enjoy!

What you need to know, currently.

Hurricane Fiona made landfall in eastern Nova Scotia on Saturday as a post-tropical storm with 90 mph winds. Although the storm weakened as it approached land, it still caused an unprecedented amount of damage and at least one death. The worst damage was in Prince Edward Island, where storm surge reached up to six feet.

After months of quiet, the Atlantic Basin is looking particularly active this week. Tropical Storm Ian formed Friday and is expected to strengthen as it approaches the United States. Ian may hit Cuba as a Category 4 and the western coast of Florida will be particularly at risk.

“The one thing I have to stress is that as Ian moves into the Gulf of Mexico the wind field is going to expand considerably,” said Jamie Rhome, acting director of the National Hurricane Center, in a briefing on Sunday. “Ian is going to be a large and powerful hurricane in the eastern Gulf of Mexico and spread its impacts over a large portion of the Florida peninsula, so don’t get too fixated on the [exact track].”
