DENVER (CBS4) – Thursday saw a continuation of our very warm and dry conditions…and we really should expect a whole lot of change in the forecast through the weekend, with highs temperatures even warmer on Saturday and Sunday. The official high for Denver at both the downtown and airport locations was right at 76 degrees – some 21 degrees above normal for tis time of year!
Tomorrow – St. Patrick’s Day – will only be a little less mild: around 70 degrees under partly cloudy skies. Then we’ll warm it up again for the weekend: look for low 80s on both Saturday and Sunday, with sunny to partly sunny skies.
Spring officially arrives early Monday morning – at 4:29am – and the first day of spring will actually see more clouds and cooler temperatures – in the mid 60s…cooler yes, but still 11 degrees above normal. Partly cloudy on Tuesday and Wednesday with highs in the upper 60s to around 70 degrees. Thursday could bring our first chance for rain since last Saturday, with a more seasonal high in the upper 50s.
