DENVER — It is a gorgeous end to the week! We'll see highs in the upper 50s to low 60s across the Metro Area today. There will be plenty of sunshine statewide too, with the mountains expecting highs in the middle 40s to low 50s.
A new storm will move into the central Rockies for the weekend. Clouds will move into Denver Saturday afternoon with highs in the upper 50s. Saturday night and Sunday will be much colder with snow and temperatures in the 20s.
Denver should get two to four inches of snow through midday Sunday. It will be a cold afternoon for the Bronco Game. If you have tickets, bundle up because temperatures will be in the mid to upper 20s at kick off.
Snow will also fall in the northern and central mountains Saturday night and Sunday with four to eight inches possible above 10,000 feet, mainly along and east of the Continental Divide.
By Monday morning, skies will have cleared and temperatures will be very cold. Expect a low in Denver of around 17 degrees with single digit readings in the mountains. By the way, the current record low for Oct. 15 is 20 degrees, set in 1970!
After that cold start to the workweek, conditions will thaw out nicely next week. Monday will only be in the 40s, but Tuesday and Wednesday will be warmer statewide. Expect highs back in the 50s on Tuesday and 60s by Wednesday.
