Denver enjoyed a quick shot of snow yesterday evening with most locations receiving around an inch. After having some very cold temperatures to start the day, the mercury will bounce back nicely Wednesday with sunny skies above.
Early this morning temperatures dropped to the low teens and even single digits in some locations in the metro area. Area roads are icy in spots due to the cold temperatures so drivers should exercise caution during their morning commute.
The cold and snow won’t be lasting long however as we will be climbing to a high temperature near 50 degrees today. Out on the eastern plains it will be cooler and in the 40s while the high country sees the 30s.
It will be dry across lower elevations while a few lingering snow showers will be possible in the high country this morning. Winds in town will be relatively calm. The northern and eastern plains as well as the high country will have some breezy winds.
Looking ahead Thursday will be mild with highs in Denver climbing to the mid-50s. A weak system moves in tomorrow night and we could see some rain and snow. Little accumulation, if any at all, is expected. Friday will be a seasonal day with highs near 48 degrees.
The weekend will be a bit unsettled as a couple of disturbances move through. There will be a slight chance for snow Saturday and Sunday with highs in the mid to upper 30s.
