Following on what has been a week of rollercoaster weather in the Mile High City, the weekend promises much calmer conditions. Overall, temperatures will remain on the cool side but there will be plenty of sun to help melt the recent snow.
For Friday winds will be calm and there will be sunny skies above. Highs today in the metro area will be around 52 degrees although with the snow still on the ground, the mercury may fall a bit short of that.

Saturday is going to see slightly warmer temperatures with highs in the upper 50s. Strong northwesterly flow will lead to some wind. Right now it looks like the worst of those will be confined to the mountains, higher foothills and a bit on the far northeastern plains.
The Broncos return to town on Sunday and it should be great football weather for their game at Mile High. Sunny skies will be above and temperatures should reach the mid-50s.

Looking ahead to next week, we seem to heading toward another unsettled period.
Monday should be the warmest day of the entire forecast period as highs approach the lower 60s.
A cold front is forecast to move through late in the day on Tuesday and temperatures will only be in the lower 50s. We could see some rain showers as well. Much like this past week’s storm, that rain is expected to change to snow overnight into Wednesday.

It is far too early to place any estimate on the impact of next week’s storm system. However models do seem to be in pretty good agreement that we will see another accumulating snowfall.
