More of the same in Colorado with warm temperatures and dry conditions. Once again, we are running about 10 degrees above average with highs in the low 50s.

We’ll be even warmer on Friday with highs in the middle 50s, and close to 60 by Saturday with plenty of sunshine.

There will be some changes heading for the high country on Saturday, bringing us a much needed chance for snow! A Pacific storm system will approach Colorado late Saturday causing snow to develop over the mountains by Saturday evening. Winter driving conditions will likely be found in the high country Saturday night through Sunday morning. This will be a fast moving storm, so it won’t bring a ton but we’ll take what we can get. These factors will limit snowfall and most ski areas will see just 3-6 inches.

For us here in Denver, we’ll have downsloping flow Saturday night and Sunday which help keep away the precipitation. However, we may still see a few flurries Sunday morning. Temperatures won’t take much of a dive, we’ll only fall to the upper 40s on Sunday but go right back to the 50s on Monday.
