DENVER (CBS4) – A lovely Tuesday across Colorado, with a bit of wind for the eastern side of the state. Temperatures exactly the same as Monday for Denver, we once again hit 57 degrees.

A big warm up on the way for Wednesday as high pressure builds to the southwest. We’ll see temperatures climb to the upper 60s and low 70s for the Front Range and plains, while many areas in the mountains could see the upper 40s.

 

Then a storm moving in from the Pacific will bring snow to the mountains Wednesday night into Thursday. The heaviest snow will likely develop late Thursday and accumulation could exceed 6 inches. For lower elevations, we’ll cool slightly and could see rain showers and even isolated thunderstorms Thursday afternoon. Then a better chance for rain will develop Thursday evening followed by a chance for slushy snow after dark. At this time we don’t expect any accumulation in the metro area.

Sunny and a little cooler on Friday, but we’re looking just lovely on Saturday for St. Patrick’s Day!
