Cooler but dry in Denver this afternoon with more fresh powder for the high country


DENVER — Clouds will increase on Thursday in the Denver area and temperatures will be a little colder. Expect highs in the low to middle 40s. Light snow is expected in the mountains with temperatures in the lower 30s. The snow will increase in the northern and central mountains Thursday night and Friday with 4 to 8 inches possible. Lighter snow will likely fall in the southern mountain areas.

There will be a chance for snow in Denver and across eastern Colorado on Friday as a cold front pushes into Colorado. Snowfall amounts will be small — ranging from just a dusting to a inch or so — but temperatures will drop back to the low to middle 30s in Denver on Friday. Colder air will also move into the mountains, with temperatures only in the 20s for highs on Friday.

Saturday will be cold but dry across Colorado, followed by another chance for snow on Sunday — all just in time for the Stock Show!

It looks like the overall weather pattern will turn colder and more stormy for Colorado through the middle of January.
