The Mile High City’s temperatures today will again climb to well-above normal levels but by the end of the day the picture will be changing. A cold front will bring chances of precipitation to the Denver area and another healthy shot of snow to the Colorado high country.

Along the Front Range we will see a good bit of sun to start the day. Clouds will be increasing by late morning as a storm system draws closer.

Daytime high temperatures will again be mild and top out in the mid to upper 50s here in town. Winds will be less dramatic today but increase this afternoon with gusts to 30 mph possible by the evening.

By about the afternoon rush hour we could begin seeing some light rain showers across the area. As temperatures drop tonight, any precipitation that does fall will begin to change to snow.

Snowfall accumulations in Denver will be minimal, if there is any at all, and due to the warm ground it will likely only stick to grassy areas. Less than an inch is expected from this fast-moving, low performing system.

Up in the high country a Winter Weather Advisory will be in effect this afternoon and through tonight. Snowfall accumulations on the order of 4 to 8 inches will be possible. Coupled with gusty winds, driving conditions could be a bit tricky.

The far eastern plains counties of Yuma, Kit Carson and Cheyenne will also be under a Winter Weather Advisory. Accumulations will only be 1 to 3 inches but strong winds will cause blowing snow and reduce visibility.
