Denver will enjoy another warm winter day on Tuesday before a storm moves in, bringing snow to the region on Wednesday.
According to the National Weather Service in Boulder, Denver will reach 60 degrees under partly sunny skies on Tuesday. The high should miss the daily record of 67 degrees, set in 2017. Winds could gust up to 15 mph in the afternoon, and temperatures will fall to 27 degrees overnight.
The moisture building before the storm could bring in some fog early Wednesday morning. That moisture will turn into a wintery mix with freezing rain and snow after 11 a.m. The precipitation should change entirely by 2 p.m., as the high temperature won’t reach 40 degrees.
The timing of the snow should complicate the Wednesday evening commute, with five inches possibly falling in Denver before midnight. Winds could reach over 20 mph in the evening, and temperatures will drop to 16 degrees.
Denver will only warm to 37 degrees under the sun on Thursday. But Friday will begin another mild trend that lasts through the weekend of highs in the 50s.
