Labor Day Weekend Weather Outlook



If you have plans to be out and about this weekend we got you covered! There are several events going on in Castle Rock, Denver and around the state! It’s all good news, Saturday looks like the only slight chance for storms (low probability) and Sunday and Monday look gorgeous with most of the stormy weather staying in the mountains. That being said, even the chances for storms are slight in mountain areas on Sunday and Monday. Either way, keep an eye out for lightning if you’re planning on spending any time above treeline this weekend!
