The storm system that hit Colorado on Tuesday has moved to the northern Great Plains and is bringing wind and snow to the Dakotas. Gusty winds and chilly temperatures held over Colorado in the wake of that system, but light winds and quiet weather are expected overnight.
It will be chilly tonight with lows around freezing in Denver and across the northeast plains. In the mountains, lows will drop to the teens to lower 20s and a few snow showers will continue.
Another storm system will quickly approach Colorado on Thursday. Rain and snow will develop west of the Continental Divide and spread to the east. Denver should expect rain showers in the afternoon and the rain may change to light snow before ending early Friday. Accumulations will be 3-6 inches in the mountains and up to an inch on grassy surfaces on the plains.
Temperatures will be chilly on Thursday with highs just in the upper 40s to low 50s in the Denver area and in the upper 20s to mid-30s in the mountains
Skies will begin to clear by early Friday and low temperatures will be in the low 30s again. In the mountains, lows will dip to the teens!
The weekend will be dry and pleasant with a slow warming trend. Highs in Denver will return to the upper 60s Saturday and mid-70 on Sunday - perfect for the Bronco game!
The aspen trees have mostly faded over the central and northern mountains, but offer a few pockets of color. Best viewing continues over the southern mountain areas. The aspen viewing will draw to a close from north to south over the next week or so.
