Denver weather: Arctic blast could drop Denver to lowest temperature in years

It will be brutally cold in Denver in the coming days, according to the National Weather Service.

Enjoy Thursday’s warmth with a high around 36 degrees because it won’t be that warm again until the middle of next week.

Snow flurries are likely before noon, with areas of fog as well. Winds could gust as high as 16 mph, and the sun should peak out at some point. The low will drop to 9 degrees while fog moves back in later tonight.

Snow will fall harder in the mountains, with Summit County getting a few inches and the areas around Rocky Mountain National Park possibly getting up to a foot.

There’s a 40% chance of snow on Friday in Denver, with areas of fog before 10 a.m. Tomorrow will be cloudy with a high of 22 degrees. Little or no snow accumulation is expected during the day or evening. The temperature will plummet to just 6 degrees.

Saturday will reach 23 degrees, with flurries expected throughout the day and evening. The overnight low is expected to drop to -2.

Sunday’s high is only projected to be 11 degrees, with an overnight low of -6. If it does get that cold, it will be Denver’s coldest temperature since January of 2017, when the mercury dropped to -12.

This week will also likely break one of Denver’s longest streak of at or above zero degree days, now at 372 consecutive days.

The cold is not limited to Colorado as the gulf coast will have some of their coldest temperatures since 1989.
