DENVER (CBS4) –
We warmed up quite a bit after our cool down on Tuesday. The winds stayed strong for most of the state, with gusts still reaching 40 mph.
Our warm up won’t last for long. Another strong cold front arrives on Thursday night, bringing more snow to the high country. Temperatures will tumble for eastern Colorado, with rain possible on Friday morning. This could turn to snow on Friday afternoon. Usually we would just a be a little annoyed our warm weather was plummeting so quickly, but this Friday is the Home Opener for the Colorado Rockies and that is not an ideal time for a major cool down and snow. Temperatures will be near 40° at first pitch which would challenge the record of coldest opening day in franchise history.
Warmer weather will return over the weekend but a storm moving across the state will continue to produce periods of snow in the mountains on both Saturday and Sunday. The only chance for precipitation in the metro area appears to be Saturday night with a 20% chance for rain.
