DENVER (CBS4) – Four time in this month of February the National Weather Service has recorded a “trace” of moisture: on the 1st, 2nd, 3rd (snow) and 19th (rain) of the month. But it was just a trace…which is really a word for “so little fell that no one really noticed”! A little different story on Thursday: enough snow fell that it actually whitened the ground in the greater metro area and several inches fell in the foothills and over northern and northeastern Colorado. The high was just 33 degrees today – 15 degrees below normal and 25 degrees colder than yesterday. Look for scattered snow showers overnight with a low in the lower teens, then snow showers again for Friday with a chilly high only in the mid 20s!
More sunshine for the weekend, but the temperatures will be slow to warm: expect mid 30s for Saturday and upper 30s for Sunday. We’ll start next week with partly sunny skies and a seasonal high in the mid 40s for Monday; back to the low 40s with more clouds on Tuesday. Mostly sunny with lower 40s on Wednesday, but finally on Thursday – sunshine and back to above normal temperatures in the lower 50s.
