DENVER (CBS4) – As promised yesterday – just one more day of those 70 degree temperatures before a major weather change: we reached 73 degrees officially on Wednesday. The good news is that our next chance for a 70 degree day will come on Easter Sunday, but before that – a little of everything! Look for partly cloudy skies tonight with a low in the mid 30s. Cooler air behind the front that pushed through the state late Wednesday will drop our high to around 40 degrees on Thursday – some 33 degrees cooler than Wednesday! With that, rain showers will develop as the day goes on. A second surge of cold air will push through late Thursday changing that rain to snow and that snow should continue through the night – expect about 1 to 4″ to fall across the greater metro area, but as much as a foot of snow is possible in some foothill locations!
Friday will see gradually clearing skies but will remain chilly with a high only in the mid 40s. Saturday has plenty of sunshine and a high warming into the seasonal upper 50s. A beautiful Easter Sunday with partly sunny skies and a high in the lower 70s.
The following is the latest information from the SNOTEL network showing the current mean of Colorado’s snowpack.
