Prepare for a shift in weather after Saturday as rain and snow are on the way.
The National Weather Service in Boulder predicts partly sunny skies Saturday with a high near 65 degrees. It will be a bit breezy with winds moving up to 15 mph in the Denver metro area. However, in the foothills and higher terrain areas, NWS says wind speeds will go as fast as 40 mph. This and low humidity may escalate wildfires in these regions, with some having humidity rates below 20%.
By Saturday evening, expect a contrast in weather as a cold front forces temperatures to drop and brings in moisture. Late Saturday night will see the beginning of snow showers that will continue through early Sunday morning. NWS says the snow showers will start off light, but it is enough to provide some help against the wildfires.
Snow will be heavier and it will be much colder Sunday. The high is only expected to reach 19 degrees, and dropping to 15 by the evening. Snow will continue through Sunday night into Monday.
