The weather, currently.
It was a rough weekend for some in the Denver area. On Saturday, Boulder County was hit by a wildfire near the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR). A portion of Boulder was evacuated and some folks were allowed back in their homes. As of this writing on Sunday morning, some homes were still evacuated and 21% of the fire was contained. I will give an update on Monday. As for Monday, we'll stay dry and very warm.
Here’s a look at Monday:
- Above average and warm; highs in the 80's
- Rain comes Tuesday
