DENVER — The snow and cold of early this week has moved out of Colorado. The weather pattern will be dry and quiet for the next 5 to 7 days.
Temperatures rebounded dramatically from the record lows of Sunday and Monday. Highs reached the mid-60s to near 70 degrees over the Denver area and the I-25 Corridor this afternoon and under bright, sunny sky. In the mountains and foothills highs reached the upper 40s to middle 50s - melting a lot of snow.
The clear skies and dry air will still mean some cool nighttime temperatures - dropping to around freezing on the plains and into the 20s in the mountains - so snow-making can continue for the ski areas.
Friday will be just slightly cooler as winds shift and blow from the north-northwest behind a very weak weather disturbance passing to the north of Colorado. Expect highs in the low to mid-60s for lower elevations and mid-40s to low 50s in the mountains.
Halloween day will be mild and dry with similar temperature readings to Friday. For Trick or Treat - temperatures will dip into the upper 40s by 8 p.m. and skies will be clear with a big full moon!
For the Broncos game on Sunday, temperatures will be in the low 60s with sunshine (far cry from the snowy game last weekend).
We also have the time change on Sunday. Don't forget to "fall back" Saturday night before bed.
Quiet weather will continue early next week with highs reaching the low to mid-70s!
Election Day weather will be mild and dry - not only for Colorado, but across much of the nation.
