The Mile High City is set to continue our unseasonably warm January on Tuesday. Colder temperatures and a decent chance for snow are set to stage a return however.
For today all of northeastern #Colorado will enjoy very mild temperatures. Highs in the #Denver area will be in the low 60s with mid to upper 50s on the eastern plains. Even the high country will be relatively mild with many locations seeing high temperatures in the 40s.
Dry conditions and mostly sunny to sunny skies will be seen across the area. There will be some gusty winds in the foothills and far eastern plains.
The weather picture changes quite a bit come Wednesday.
Tomorrow’s high temperatures in town will top out right near the normal for the date of 44 degrees. That however is expected to occur during the earlier part of the day and then a cold front will push through dropping temperatures.
By the evening we may be seeing some light snow with chances increasing overnight Wednesday into early Thursday morning. Latest models are trending toward a bit more snow than originally thought. Current indications are toward 1 to 3 inches accumulation in the metro area with higher amounts in the foothills.
Snow will taper off gradually Thursday morning but the temperatures will remain cold with highs only in the mid to upper 20s.
We will rebound nicely for Friday and the weekend with a return to dry conditions and temperatures in the 50s.
Next Monday may bring another chance for snow.
