It's September 3rd, historically the earliest snowfall for Denver came today in 1961 with 4.2 inches but 2023 brings a mix of sun and clouds with highs into the 90s. Labor Day will also hit the 90s but a bit of a cooler stretch kicks off Tuesday...more on that in a moment.

Clearly, not the best outlook for rain lovers, but today's outlook is higher than the next two days. So, let's expand on that.

For today, scattered storms will develop in the high country and move toward the metro areas and plains. Overall, the threat of storms today is shown here:

We hope you have a good Labor Day, and week ahead. We won't challenge the earliest first snow record this year - clearly.
