Currently in Denver โ€” October 19th, 2022

The weather, currently.

Sunny and low 70s for Wednesday, October 18th. 

If you've lived in Colorado long, you know that we go through different versions of fall. There's warm fall where you don't see a difference from summer, freezing in the mornings and evenings and warm in the afternoon fall, and it's straight cold in the fall where you feel like winter is coming soon. For the next three days, it is warm fall.

A ridge of high pressure will move our direction and bring clear skies and warmer temperatures to the Denver area. Expect temperatures in the 70s in the afternoon and temperatures in the 40s in the early morning and late evening.

Here's what your Wednesday looks like:

1) Warmer by sunrise but only by a little. Temperatures will be in the low 40s by sunrise and 50s by 9 a.m.

2) Low 70s in the afternoon with sunshine.

3) This pattern repeats through the end of the week.

Activity forecast:

All activities: There's a blurry line for us meteorologists when it comes to determining what people find as cold and what people find as cold. Some find 60s cold while others that doesn't come until it is 14 outside. It is all purely subjective. What I can tell you is it will be a smidge warmer outside, and to use your best judgment when it comes to adding layers for the rest of this week.

Currently's San Francisco weather reporter, Priya Shukla, wrote a children's activity book, Marine Biology Activities for Kids, which is available for pre-order starting today.

When she is not writing the weather reports for the bay area, Shukla is a PhD candidate at UC Davis studying the effects of climate change on oysters.

Shukla said that she wrote this activity book to give kids an opportunity to engage with the fantastic and weird creatures of the ocean.

โ€œSome of the reasons that I pursued marine science as a profession, are grounded in the memories I made as a kid,โ€ said Shukla.

She said that she tried to sprinkle in information throughout the book about how humans effect the ocean, with the hope that kids will develop and appreciation and connection to nature.

โ€œI do I really firmly believe that if you can start to see glimpses of the beauty of nature anywhere, then that will give you a stronger motivation for protecting the community that you're a part of,โ€ Shukla said.

The activity book, is ideal for kids ages 7 through 9, it has mazes, word searches, crossword puzzles and more. You can get it here.
