Mother Nature appears to be temporarily pausing the afternoon showers and cloudy skies that we’ve come to expect in Denver, signaling that maybe just maybe there’s a little bit of summer left still.

Saturday is expected to be mostly sunny with a high near 91. There is a 10 percent chance that Denver’s streak of afternoon showers will continue sometime after noon, according to the National Weather Service.
