More upper 40s by Thursday
Finally back above freezing!
DENVER - Our winds have calmed quite a bit overnight, although you'll still find some gusts near 40 mph in the mountains today. These winds did help to warm things up, though, with highs in the 40s on Tuesday.
A fast moving weather disturbance is racing through the state. The passage of this system will bring out temperatures down a bit today. We'll see teens for your drive into work and upper 30s by this afternoon.
Thursday and Friday will be milder and dry, with highs in the 40s. The weather for the Bronco game should be pretty good for this time of year, with temperatures in the low 30s early and mid 20s by the end of the fourth quarter.
A weak storm will bring some light snow to the mountains Friday night and Saturday and perhaps a few flurries to the metro area. Sunday and next Monday will be mild, dry and very nice.
I am looking waaay ahead to the weather leading up to Christmas. Right now, it appears that another bitter cold blast is shaping up to arrive in Colorado around the 20th and stick around for several days. Could be a new "Polar Express" just in time for the holiday!
