DENVER (CBS4) –
Wednesday was the warmest day of the week, with highs in the upper 60s and low 70s for eastern Colorado. Some late day clouds did keep us from hitting 70 here in Denver, but overall it was still a very warm day for us.
Two storms are heading our way that will shake up our dry and warm pattern. The first arrives on Thursday, and will bring snow to the mountains. We could even see some rain here in Denver later in the day. As cold air ushers in with the system, there is a chance some of that rain changes over into slushy snow. Some of that could stick with us through the commute on Friday morning.
Friday we’ll have a continued chance for snow showers in the mountains while Denver turns mostly sunny and dry. It will also be windy statewide on Friday with gusts over 30 mph in the metro area.
The wind relaxes for St Patrick’s Day on Saturday before returning again on Sunday. More mountain snow possible on Saturday night, with rain possible in Denver on Sunday night.
