It is somewhat of a mixed bag of weather for northeastern Colorado. While the Mile High City will be unseasonably warm, areas to our west will be seeing strong winds and snow.

For Denver we can expect partly sunny skies to start the day that give way to mostly cloudy conditions later this morning. Temperatures will be a good bit above average with highs today topping out in the low 50s.

Strong winds are expected to develop later today in the foothills with gusts to 75 mph possible through tonight. A High Wind Watch has been issued for all foothills areas from west of Castle Rock to the northern Colorado border.

Up in the high country, snow will be developing in the northern Colorado mountains with overnight accumulations of 3 to 7 inches possible.

A Winter Weather Advisory will be in effect beginning at 5:00 p.m. this evening for the northern mountains, 6:00 a.m. tomorrow for the central mountains and along the I-70 corridor. Strong winds coupled with the snow can be expected to create hazardous driving conditions.

Looking ahead, milder conditions are expected along the Colorado Front Range starting Thursday and into the weekend.

Highs tomorrow may be above 60 degrees here in town. A weak cold front will affect the area Thursday night but Friday’s highs will still be well above normal in the mid to upper 50s. Saturday and Sunday are expected to bounce back to the low 60s.
