DENVER — The snowstorm hit fast and dropped over a foot of snow in the mountains west of Denver and 3 to 6 inches in the suburbs. That storm has now raced to the east of Colorado, leaving clear skies for tonight.
Lows will drop to the single digits overnight in the mountains and into the upper teens to middle 20s for Denver and the eastern plains.
Milder weather will quickly return for Friday with highs in the low to mid-60s in the Denver area. It will be a little cooler across the western and southern suburbs where there will still be some lingering snow to melt away.
Saturday will be a delightful day all across Colorado! Sunny skies and warmer temperatures with highs in the upper 60s to low 70s on the plains and 50s in the mountains.
Another fast-moving storm will bring cold and snow to the state Saturday night and Sunday. Expect sharply colder temperatures on Sunday with highs only around 30 degrees in Denver. Early estimates show 3 to 6 inches of snow for the Denver area with 8 to 12 inches in the mountains.
Monday morning will be very cold with snow on the highways - plan on a long, slow commute!
This next storm will not exit the state quickly. Cold and periods of snow will linger through the middle of next week. Low temperatures Monday and Wednesday morning will be in the single digits or low teens - near record cold levels!
Hopefully, the freeze will ease by Halloween!
