Watch Dave Aguilera's Forecast

Video Transcript

- Yeah. Time is now 7:42, and a guy who has little cubs of his own, right? Dave Aguilera, how are you doing, my friend?

DAVE AGUILERA: Yes, I do. And a couple of them are getting out of the cub stage.

- That's right.

DAVE AGUILERA: They get that teenage look, you know? And you're just like, they're not cute anymore.

- That's right.

DAVE AGUILERA: No, I'm kidding. I'm kidding. Hey, look at Elitches downtown. You can see sunshine in the background out there. And if you look real closely, you can see the smoke plume out there in Commerce City. It's going straight up, so we don't have much wind at all going on this morning.

Here's our City Park camera looking over our town. Little sliver of a cloud way out right along the front range here in the foothills. Otherwise, it's mostly clear blue skies. 30 degrees out in City Park right now. Other temperatures, a lot of 30s and 20s. We're cold this morning, gang. Look at this.

Fort Collins, Greeley, Dia all still below freezing right now. Limon's at 20 degrees, 18 in Gunnison. Little chilly. Castle Rock 25 degrees from Hope Bloom, our weather watcher there. And Melinda Leach up in Boulder, 31 degrees right now.

Now, the wind has been the big story the last couple of days. We still have a little bit in some areas, but not like the last few. Up in the foothills and the mountains still going pretty good. Black Hawk at 39 miles per hour, 37 at Berthoud Pass. And then you get into town, it's only like 5 to 10 mile per hour gusts from time to time.

This afternoon the breezes will kick up. In Denver, we could have maybe 20, 25 on the high end, which is not like yesterday. Yesterday, if you remember, we had up to 40 mile per hour gusts around here kick up in the afternoon, so that's an improvement for us today. There are a couple of areas where the red flag warning is flying in the northwest, southwest, and the San Luis Valley. Those red shaded areas could see gusts up to 35, humidity levels way down. Fire danger a little high there today, so watch out if you're watching from that part of our state.

Otherwise, there's the satellite. Clean slate except for one or two clouds here and there with high pressure coming in. Next chance of weather is this cold front. It's going to zoom in here. Right now, it's in Boise, but it should make it through here by the time we get to tomorrow. In fact, take a look. Here we go. This afternoon, high pressure still involved with our weather. Westerly wind, warming wind. And then the front slides through.

I think sometime between 8 and 10 o'clock tomorrow morning, the front makes it through here. A couple of clouds here and there. We might have a sprinkle here and there with the cloud coming through, but for all intents and purposes, little moisture at all, if any coming through, but you will notice a change. Most temperatures will drop by about, oh, 8 to 10 degrees tomorrow.

Temperatures today though, up to the 60s and 70s to the east, 50s and 40s in the mountains. And Grand Junction and Cortez, you're looking at temperatures in the upper 60s to near 70 today. So 68 officially for Denver. I think some of our suburbs may touch 70 today. 55 tomorrow, and it will be a little more windy tomorrow behind that cold front.

Still 55 on Monday, and then Tuesday and Wednesday we've got another shot of moisture coming through. In fact, Wednesday there's a 70% chance of a rain snow mix in the afternoon, so we might get some more measurable moisture. Still a question mark on how much of that will stick, but with temperatures that warm probably not a lot of sticking snow out there. So I don't think you'll have to shovel too much in the week ahead.

- That's a good thing because you know, I mean, I got these guns but you know, shoveling sure does get tired after a while.

DAVE AGUILERA: Oh, that's how you build those up.

- That's right.

DAVE AGUILERA: The old fashioned way.

- Especially we have a little one.

DAVE AGUILERA: There you go.

- Thank you so much, Dave.

DAVE AGUILERA: You bet.
