Denver weather: Temperatures drop with two rounds of snow on the way

The sunny and unseasonably warm temperatures of the past few days are gone. Slight winds of under 10 mph will come in from the north, dropping temperatures and whipping up a batch of snow overnight.

Mostly cloudy skies with a high of 43 are what the forecast calls for Thursday in Denver, according to the National Weather Service in Boulder.

In the evening, temperatures will plunge to 23 degrees, bringing snow. Up to 3 inches of the white stuff is expected downtown starting after 8 p.m., 4-6 inches are expected in the foothills and up to 8 inches in Colorado’s high country.

The small storm will lead to a chilly Friday, with the first round of snow wrapping up around daybreak. The high will only reach 29 degrees and then drop down to 18 degrees overnight.

Snow will start back up again around lunchtime on Saturday. A high of 36 degrees and a low of 13 degrees will make for a chilly evening. The Saturday snow should end around midnight.

If Denver records measurable snow which is expected, it would be the city’s first in December.
