DENVER — First Alert Action Day: The snow will taper off, but cold temperatures will cover Colorado tonight and early Friday. The snow that has fallen will likely cause scattered icy spots and stretches over the streets and sidewalks tonight - so be careful!

The snow will decrease in coverage and intensity through tonight and skies will begin to clear over much of Colorado. By morning, low temperatures will dive into the low teens and single digits. Some areas of low clouds and fog will develop over the northeast plains - especially in the South Platte Valley northeast of Denver.

Highs will bounce back to the middle 40s to low 50s Friday afternoon under sunny to partly cloudy skies.

The weekend should be milder with highs back into the mid-to upper 50s for lower elevations and in the 40s in the mountains. A series of weak weather disturbances will spread some clouds and scattered rain and snow showers into the mountains both Saturday and Sunday. Some scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms will be possible in Denver and across the eastern plains on Sunday.

Highs will finally climb back to the low to mid-60s next week for Denver and the eastern plains. Monday will be a drier day, but there will be some scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms next week - especially Tuesday and Thursday - but at least NO SNOW!
