Now that temperatures have dipped to 10 degrees downtown Wednesday morning and a few inches of snow are in the forecast over the next couple of days, it feels like winter is finally here.
Forecasters are expecting a warmup after New Year’s Day, but a blustery end to 2021 should be expected over the next few days.
According to the National Weather Service in Boulder, Denver will reach 38 degrees on Wednesday with winds gusting over 15 mph under mostly sunny conditions. Snow will continue to fall in the mountains, increasing in intensity overnight. Six inches could fall along the Front Range and nine for the Park Range. There should be stronger wind gusts in the high country, making for another rough travel day. Denver will dip to 20 degrees Wednesday evening.
Thursday will warm to 51 degrees in Denver under sunny skies, but wind gusts over 30 mph will chill the day. Temperatures will fall to 25 degrees overnight as winds continue to howl. The strong winds mean elevated fire conditions for the plains. Meanwhile, snow will keep falling in the mountains, and blowing snow will be widespread.
Snow is likely in Denver on Friday, as a storm system will bring widespread snow to the area. The powder will begin to fall on the city around 11 a.m. as the temperature rises to 37 degrees. There’s a 70% chance of precipitation later on in the day, as 2022 will begin with temperatures falling into the single digits.
A warm up in the weather should begin on Monday.
