Wednesday night bright light snowfall to the Denver area but the fast moving system is already moving out. In its wake Thursday brings windy conditions and cool temperatures.
The snow fell quickly and somewhat furiously last night but only for a very short period of time. Most locations in town received about a half inch, just enough to cover the grass.
Today we will have partly to mostly sunny skies above. Temperatures are going to remain cooler than normal with highs in the low to mid-40s.
The real weather story today is going to be the wind which will be building through the morning hours. Gusts to 45 mph will be possible in town with higher readings to our east and west.
The mountains and foothills will be under a High Wind Warning tonight; the base of the foothills under a High Wind Watch.
