DENVER (CBS) - A Cold front took it’s time getting to and through Colorado on Wednesday and that allowed the temperatures to stay only a few degrees cooler than Tuesday. Our official high at the airport was a pleasant 74 degrees and we warmed to 76 downtown. The cold front passed over the eastern plains during the afternoon and kicked off a few showers and thunderstorms, thta spread and continued deep into the evening. For Thursday, thanks to the passage of that cold front, we’ll lose another 8 to 10 degrees but stay dry with partly sunny skies.

We’ll end the week in fine style as temperatures warm into the mid 70s under partly sunny skies. Saturday will start out in great shape with sunny to partly sunny skies and a high getting into the low 70s. But by afternoon we’ll begin to feel the effects on that next weather change with late day thunderstorms. Overnight a cold front will push though the state and Sunday will see mostly cloudy skies with a good chance for rain and a colder high only in the upper 50s. Sunday night into Monday temperatures will drop into the mid 30s and some of that rain could mix with, or change over to, snow!

Monday will have a chance for a few lingering showers with the high staying in the cool 50s. Partly cloudy and dry on Tuesday but still cool – in the mid 50s. We’ll stay with partly cloudy skies on Wednesday with a high around 60 degrees.
