Denver weather: City thaws out after freeze, but snow returns Friday

Denver’s temperature dipped to 16 degrees overnight, and freezing drizzle from Tuesday is keeping things very slick. But the sun is on the way, and it will thaw the citywide skating rink. Still, a wintery day of weather is expected on Friday.

According to the National Weather Service in Boulder, Denver will reach 43 degrees under sunny skies then fall to 23 degrees overnight on Thursday. Morning temperatures are rising from the teens, with patchy fog possible in some areas and slick road conditions.

Denver should expect snow between 11 a.m. and 11 p.m. on Friday, with a high of 42 degrees. The white stuff is most likely in the mountains on Friday, with a 60% chance in the city.

The snow will mostly be light, but several inches of accumulation are possible across the Front Range mountains and foothills, especially areas west, southwest, and south of Denver in the late afternoon and early evening. Denver itself should receive less than an inch of snow. Wind gusts near 20 mph are possible, and a low of 19 degrees is forecasted.

Saturday will be clear with a high of 42 degrees.

Sunday should warm into the 50s, and Monday night could bring another snowstorm system into the region.
