Currently in Denver - October 3rd, 2022

The weather, currently.

Low 70 and p.m. thunderstorms for Monday, October 3rd. 

I am switching from 80s to country songs for songs that summarize the beginning of the work weeks weather. If you are fan of the cooler temperatures and rainy weather, then you will like it, you'll love it, you want some more of this weeks weather.

That same front that stalled out over the weekend next to the Rockies and brought us cooler and wetter conditions will continue to bring the same weather for Monday. But, now that Ian has just dissipated over land, I can say that the front looks like it is going to move now over the state of Colorado on Tuesday. So what does that mean? That means Monday will pretty much be the same as Sunday, with 70s and rain chances. As that front moves, expect cooler weather (in the mid to low 60s) and rain for Tuesday.  

Here's a recap of your Monday weather:

1) Cool morning with temperatures in the 50s. If that is on the cooler side for you, think about wearing layers as you head out in the morning.

2) Afternoon highs will be in the low 70s with chances of thunderstorms after noon.

3) Rain chances continue through the evening.

Hurricane Ian weakened Saturday as it made its way into the mid-Atlantic. According to Currently’s Chief Meteorologist, Megan Montero, the start of the work week will be “calm,” though Ian will continue to affect the weather as it continues to dissipate:

“First, Ian dissipated over land today and will bring wet weather to the Northeast on Sunday and Monday. Secondly, Ian is in directly bringing a lot of wet weather to the West. Ian kind of disrupted the flow of the atmosphere a little bit this weekend causing a front over the Rockies to remain stationary (they usually pass through very quickly. A front remaining stationary over here is kind of unusual) and bringing above average rainfall to areas like Colorado, Utah, Arizona and New Mexico.”

Though millions remain without power since Ian knocked out the country’s grid, Cuban utilities are starting to come back. Similarly, as Floridians assess the storm’s damage, there is still lingering flooding and closed roads. But, the focus has turned to rescue and recovery and as of Saturday, more than 1,000 people have been rescued from flooded areas along the state’s southwestern coast.
