Denver weather: More mild days, chance of snow to start weekend – The Denver Post

Denver will have a few more days of nice weather this week as highs in the 50s continue, but that could change Friday.

According to the National Weather Service in Boulder, Denver will reach 52 degrees under increasing cloud cover but mostly sunny skies on Wednesday. The clouds are a sign of storms in the area as light snow could accumulate up to 2 inches in the mountains, yet there should be minimal impact. Overnight temperatures are expected to fall to 26 degrees Wednesday night.

Thursday will be mostly sunny with a high of 58 degrees. While warm, the day won’t touch the record high of 80 degrees set in 2017. Nighttime lows will drop to 31 degrees as winds could gust around 20 mph. Those winds near the Foothills Thursday night into early Friday morning could gust greater than 60 mph.

A cold front moves in behind the wind on Friday, bringing a chance of snow in the afternoon and evening. Accumulations will be mostly light, but slick travel is possible. Denver has a 40% chance of snow starting after 11 a.m. Partly sunny skies will peak through snow showers as the high reaches 46 degrees. Winds could gust to 23 mph, and the snow could fall until midnight. Temperatures should fall into the teens overnight.

Highs could reach the 50s and into the 60s late into the weekend and early next week.
