DENVER — After last week's cold and snow, Colorado can expect a warmer weather pattern with just a couple of chances for showers.
Skies will be mostly clear tonight with low temperatures in the mid-to upper 30s in the Denver area and across eastern Colorado. In the mountains, lows will be in the 20s to low 30s under a partly cloudy sky. A minor storm system will swirl into southern Colorado late tonight with cloudy skies and some scattered rain and snow showers developing.
Tuesday will start out mostly sunny in Denver and across northeastern Colorado. Clouds will increase by midday with some scattered showers and thunderstorms developing in the afternoon. Highs will still be mild - in the lower 60s. Scattered rain and snow showers can be expected in the mountains with highs in the middle 40s to lower 50s.
Wednesday will be a drier day statewide with highs in the 60s to low 70s on the plains and 50s to near 60 in the mountains.
Another fairly minor storm system will move into Colorado for Thursday. Scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms will be possible, but temperatures will stay pretty mild - in the low to mid-60s for Denver and in the upper 40s to mid-50s in the mountains. Rain will mix with or change to snow above 10,000 feet late Thursday.
Friday will be cooler with a good chance for showers in Denver and across eastern Colorado. Highs will drop back into the 50s. Snow will be likely in the mountains, but it will not be a major storm. Highs in the high country will fall back to the upper 30s to mid-40s.
Skies will clear on Saturday with warmer temperatures - back in the 60s for Denver and the plains and 50s in the mountains.
Sunday and Monday will be dry and warm with highs in the low to mid-70s for the Denver area and most lower elevations and 50s to around 60 in the mountains!
