50 Degree Temperature Swing Ahead

By Lauren Whitney

DENVER (CBS4)

A nice, mild day in Colorado with temperatures right around average. Just a beautiful fall day for us on Tuesday!

We’ll ramp up on Wednesday, with highs heading close to 80! Plenty of upper 70s and low 80s across eastern Colorado, with sunshine statewide.

 

That warm up is short lived, we quickly plummet to the upper 40s on Thursday afternoon as a powerful cold front passes through the state. This will bring some quick precipitation to the Front Range and foothills. We may see some quick rain/snow mix or brief snow here in Denver, with up to an inch or two possible in the foothills.

By Friday morning parts of the state, including metro Denver, will likely see the coldest air so far this season with lows near 20 degrees.

The cold won’t last long, we’re back to the 50s and 60s with sunshine this weekend.
