DENVER (CBS4) – It’s a sign of what’s to come in the days and weeks ahead for Colorado!
A strong cold front is expected to blast through the region sometime late Thursday or early Friday and it will bring some of the coldest air we’ve seen since late May.
Denver’s average high right now is around 87 degrees but we may struggle to reach 70 degrees on Saturday with lows Friday night potentially falling into the upper 40s.
Along with colder air this front will bring the chance for widespread rain showers and a few thunderstorms.
It’ll be even colder in the mountains to start your weekend if you’re making plans to camp or hike. In fact, it may get cold enough to suppport a few snow showers or a rain-snow mix above tree line by Friday night.
It was just a few days ago when Pikes Peak woke up to a light dusting of snow.
