DENVER — A cold front will slip down from Wyoming into Colorado Saturday. Clouds will increase and showers will develop on the northeastern plains in the afternoon. The northern mountains will likely receive a couple inches of new snow.
The cold front will mainly impact areas along and east of the Continental Divide. Highs were only in the upper 50s for Denver, and most places have just seen an increase in cloud coverage through the evening hours.
Temperatures will be cooler in northern Colorado, with a trace to 2 inches of snow possible near the Wyoming and Nebraska border through tonight. Wind chill factor in Sterling 17 degrees Saturday afternoon while feels like 71 in Grand Junction.
Easter Sunday will start off mostly cloudy with temperatures around 30 degrees in the morning in the Denver area. Some snow showers will linger in the mountains, but the plains will likely stay dry. Skies clear across the state through the afternoon.
Highs on Sunday will be in the low to mid-60s in Denver and in the 40s to low 50s in the mountains. Should be a nice day!
Warmer weather will return early next week for the region as highs reach the 70s on Monday in the Denver area. Skies will be sunny in the morning, but another fast moving cold front will push into Colorado late in the day, bringing an increase in clouds.
Rain, snow and colder weather will arrive on Tuesday, with temperatures staying in the 40s. We will watch the Tuesday system as it might be the next First Alert Action Day for the Denver area.
