DENVER (CBS4) –
We tied a daily record high in Denver on Tuesday when we hit 69 degrees! This tied a 122 year old record from 1895! It certainly did not feel like December.
A large ridge of high pressure is parked right over the western United States, keeping us warm and sunny once again.
A cold front moves through Colorado on Wednesday morning, dropping our temperatures to the mid 50s. We’ll see an increase in clouds and a quick drop in temperature. Snow is possible in the high country in the afternoon and evening. We aren’t expecting much, but could see around 4 inches of snow for the mountains.
In terms of snow in the metro area, it’s possible. If it does snow, it will most likely be west of I-25 and south of C-470 during the evening. A few spots could see up to 1″ inch of accumulation by midnight Wednesday night.
Cooler weather will then settle in for Thursday along with very gusty winds, but high temperatures will still be above normal for the middle of December. Highs in the 60s will return for Friday. We’ll be in the 50s through the weekend.
