DENVER -Tuesday morning was one of, it not the coldest so far this winter in some areas on Colorado’s northeast plains. But thanks to dry air we’ve seen a nice recovery in temperatures this afternoon with widespread 20s and 30s.
A warming trend begins on Wednesday as high pressure builds east from southern California and takes control of the weather across Colorado through Friday. Westerly downsloping winds will allow temperatures to climb into the mid 50s on Wednesday and then mid 60s on Thursday and Friday.
Then a storm will approach our region for the weekend bringing snow to the high country starting Friday night. At this time it appears the storm will break off from the main flow in the atmosphere and track east across southern Colorado and northern New Mexico which would place it in the ideal position for upslope along the Front Range. The result would be snow in Denver and along the entire urban corridor from late Saturday through early Sunday. We’ll keep you posted!
