DENVER (CBS4) –
We tied a daily record high in Denver on Thursday by hitting 65 degrees! The old record was from 1920. Friday, we could come close or tie again with a daily record high of 68 degrees. Hard to believe we could almost reach 70 degrees!
Just like Thursday, we could see a mix of clouds and sunshine which could possibly prevent us from hitting that 68 degree marker.
Major changes roll in this weekend to put an end to our warm trend. A potent winter storm will race into Colorado on Saturday. Snow and rain will start on the Western Slope, and fill into the high country by the evening. Overnight into Sunday, the snow will really crank up and head into Denver. We may see a rain/snow mix on Saturday night before turning to full snow.
The mountains could see 4 to 8 inches, or up to a foot in some areas, while we are looking at 2 to 4 inches in Denver. Areas near the Palmer Divide and south of Denver could pick up much more.
Snow will clear on Sunday afternoon/evening, and then we’re a bit cooler and sunny to start next week.
