The Mile High City will enjoy a very pleasant day Thursday with temperatures well above normal. Up in the Colorado high country, a winter storm is set to bring another shot of snow and an advisory has been issued.

For the Front Range, downslope flow is going to help to propel temperatures to nearly 10 degrees above normal. Highs in Denver will be in the mid to upper 50s, possibly pushing 60 degrees in some locations.

Denver will have partly sunny skies and winds should remain relatively light. The one wildcard is the very slight chance to see a rain shower late today. Right now it looks like the activity will stay to our northeast but it can’t be entirely ruled out.

Up in the mountains, some light snow will be possible through the day. Coverage and intensity will be increasing by late afternoon and early evening.

A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for most mountain areas. Going into effect at 5:00 p.m. this afternoon and running through 5:00 a.m. Friday, the National Weather Service warns of overnight accumulations of 4 to 8 inches.

For Friday and the weekend, a storm system and cold front are going to turn things toward the colder end of the spectrum.

Friday will be mild initially in town with highs in the low to mid-50s. Later in the day a cold front will move in resulting in colder temperatures and chances for snow.

There will be a slight chance for some light snow Friday night with better chances Saturday and Saturday night. Highs on Saturday and Sunday in Denver will only be in the 30s.
