Fort Collins Labor Day Forecast: Could Be Cool and Rainy
Hurricanes in the south could bring moisture along with cooler temps to Colorado just ahead of Labor Day weekend.
CBS4 Denver is reporting that tropical storms developing into hurricanes to the south, like Nora near Baja California, will likely cause rain thousands of miles away here in Colorado. According to The Weather Channel, on Thursday, September 2, the high will only reach 78 degrees with isolated thunderstorms. Friday and Saturday are expected to be the same with a high of 80 degrees.
CBS4 warns that the rain expected later next week could cause mudslides in wildfire burn areas, stating that 'it could be enough rain to cause flash flooding, mud slides, debris flows, and roadway rockslides again going into Labor Day weekend.'
Don't let this forecast rain on your parade — or rather, your plans to take the boat out on Horsetooth for Labor Day. The latter part of the long holiday weekend will be drier. Sunday is expected to be mostly sunny with a high of 84, and temps are predicted to reach 86 degrees on Labor Day.
Also, it's still over a week away, and we know that the Colorado forecast is always subject to extreme change. Take Labor Day weekend 2020 for example, when we 'went from brushing ash from the Cameron Peak Fire to brushing snow off our cars within a 24 hour period.'
On September 5, 2020, the National Weather Service reported that 'Denver set its all time record high for September, reaching 101 degrees during the afternoon.' By September 8, there was one to three inches of snow on the ground in Fort Collins. So at least we can say with some confidence — at least it won't be snowing this year.
