Temperatures near 70° in Denver this afternoon


DENVER — It’s going to be an extremely mild end to the week, with dry conditions across Colorado. It will be warmer with highs back into the upper 60s and maybe even 70 degrees in Denver and upper 40s to middle 50s in the mountains.

A weak cold front will move into Colorado Saturday afternoon. Clouds will increase and there may be some rain and snow showers developing late in the day. Highs will be in the middle 50s. A few inches of snow may fall in the northern and central mountains Saturday night, with some flurries possible in the Denver area.

Skies will clear on Sunday with highs in the lower 50s. Monday and Tuesday should stay dry and mild with highs in the low 60s.

The jet stream pattern should shift a bit farther to the south in the next week and become more active through the end of November with a better chance for snow.
