Rounding Out August

Well Denver had the two warmest days of the year over the weekend with 96 on Saturday and 98 on Sunday. The 98 degrees was a new record.

You know what was so funny is it really didn't feel that hot outside. I actually was shocked when I watched the news and saw it was a record high.

Monsoonal moisture has invaded the state today along with a cold front moving down from Wyoming.

It is very cloudy this morning, much more humid and cooler.

Hurricane Bill, now a tropical storm, is racing off across the North Atlantic today. It will become extra-tropical and bring windy, wet weather to northern Europe over the next few days.

A new area of disturbed weather is drifting west toward the islands of the Carribbean, but at this point, forecasters are only giving it about a 30% chance of forming into something.

The slow moving cold front has finally pushed off the east coast of the US after bringing a very unsettled weekend. Some really soaking rains were recorded by CoCoRaHS observers from North Carolina to Maine.

Most of the action this week will be in the middle of the nation as a series of cold fronts move across the Rockies.
