The Mile High City continues to climb up from the big chill that has dominated the month of February so far. While Denver will enjoy unseasonably warm weather, the mountains are going to be receiving yet another shot of snow.
For today in town we started the morning quite warm with many locations staying above freezing. The mild downslope flow, coupled with some winds, helped to contribute to that.
High temperatures today in town will be in the upper 50s with some locations possibly registering 60 degree readings. Mostly sunny skies will be above across the plains.
Winds were breezy in the morning and after easing during the day will pick back up this afternoon and evening, particularly in the foothills. Gusts over 30 mph will be possible in the usual, wind-prone areas.

In the central and northern mountains snow is going to continue today. Higher elevations could receive 5 to 10 inches through tonight while the lower valleys receive a few inches.
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until 11:00 p.m. for much of the high country. The snow coupled with strong winds are expected to create hazardous driving conditions, particularly at the higher passes.
Looking ahead, Denver will continue to enjoy unseasonably warm daytime temperatures into the first part of next week. We are keeping an eye on a possible change in the weather pattern around the middle of next week that could bring a return to colder and possibly wetter weather.
