Denver weather: First flakes of snow spotted in Denver Wednesday

Denver’s high temperatures will be 30 degrees colder on Wednesday than the mild 70 degree-high on Tuesday. The cooler temperatures brought some snowflakes to the metro area, including about a half-inch of accumulation in Greeley. Parts of Denver did see a few flakes Wednesday morning, but it may not have been enough to count officially.

According to the National Weather Service in Boulder, Denver will experience one of its coldest days in months, with a high of 39 degrees. Overcast skies will gradually clear, but the temperatures will only fall, with a low of 20 degrees expected downtown and temperatures in the single digits overnight.

Warmer and drier air returns Thursday, bringing with it elevated fire danger. A high of 55 degrees under a mostly sunny sky is expected in Denver. The low will dip to 33 degrees.

Friday will be mostly sunny with a high of 62 degrees. Winds could gust to 16 mph in the afternoon before temperatures fall to 34 degrees overnight.

Warm and dry weather is expected through the weekend and into early next week, with just a chance of light showers in the mountains over the weekend.
