A wildfire developed near Estes Park Tuesday and has grown to over 100 acres due to dry, warm and windy weather.

A cold front will push across the state overnight. The winds will shift from the west and blow from the northwest and be quite gusty tonight as the front moves through. Gusts of 30-50 mph will be common in the mountains and foothills.

A rain-snow mix develop in the mountains, mainly along and north of I-70, but amounts will be light. As the front crosses the eastern plains, there is a slight chance that a few rain and snow showers could fall over Denver and the eastern plains through early Wednesday morning.

The odds of getting measurable snow are rather low for Denver from this cold front. Right now, Denver has gone 205 days since the last snowfall. The longest streak on record is 211 days, set in 1977 and 1992. Denver is also on track for one of the latest first snows on record. If no snow falls through next Sunday (Nov. 21), the city would set a new mark for the latest first snowfall, beating the current record of Nov. 21, 1934.

Wednesday will be dry, but colder with highs in the 40s. Thursday will be dry and cool with a high of 50 degrees. Friday will be warmer — back to the middle 60s.

Saturday through Monday are looking dry and mild, with highs in the middle 50s to low 60s.
