Denverites will have to endure one more hot day before fall weather will finally take hold.
Tuesday’s high is 92 degrees, but a cold front will move through the area overnight, lowering Wednesday’s high temperature to 61 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.
The day will likely stay dry Tuesday, but there is a 40% chance of showers and storms after 9 p.m. as the front moves in. The low Tuesday is 55 degrees.
There will be a limited threat of flash flooding in burn areas, and the mountains are expected to get much more rain than the Urban Corridor.

Showers as storms look all but certain Wednesday night with a 90% chance before 3 a.m., and Thursday will have a 60% chance with a high temperature of 68 degrees.
The National Weather Service says they are considering a flood watch across the southern Front Range from Wednesday at noon into Thursday. the forecasts shows a possibility of the precipitation having longer durations due to the amount of moisture in the air.
There is a “slight risk of excessive rainfall over most of the high country Wednesday into Thursday, and at least a marginal risk extending into the Front Range foothills and adjacent plains,” forecasters said.
Things will normalize Friday and Saturday as the forecast looks sunny and clear, with highs at 80 degrees.
