Denver weather: Cold front brings snow chances, freezing low temperatures

A cold front moving into the Front Range Wednesday night will bring sizeable snow chances to the Denver metro area, and some cities may even see their first measurable snow of the season.

Daytime Wednesday will be partly sunny with a high of 56 degrees, then rain chances will begin about 10 p.m.

The cold front will move down the Interstate 25 corridor around or after midnight with up to 30-mph wind gusts following behind it.

This will cool temperatures down to a low of 32 degrees, and some precipitation will move into the area. It will start as rain, but will transition over to snow after 3 a.m.

“The first accumulating snowfall of the year for the urban corridor is certainly possible but not guaranteed due to above freezing temperatures during the time of snow and the relatively warm ground temperatures,” forecasters at the National Weather Service in Boulder said. “A trace to 1 inch of snow is forecast especially across the western suburbs of Denver.”

Thursday has a 60% chance of rain and snow showers in the morning, and the high will be 49 degrees.

Thursday night will mostly clear up, but the low is a frigid 26 degrees.

Temperatures will warm up Friday and into the weekend, with highs around 60 degrees through Sunday.
