Denver weather: Light snow possible Friday; freeze breaks this weekend

After about 120 straight hours of below-freezing temperatures, Denver should begin to thaw Saturday, but first, we could see a touch more snow on Friday.

 

According to the National Weather Service (NWS) in Boulder, Denver will only reach a high of 29 degrees with a 20% chance of snow after noon. Clouds will increase throughout the day, and temperatures should climb from a morning wind chill value of negative five degrees.

The temperature will quickly fall after dark, and the chance for snow increases to 40%. The low is forecasted at nine degrees, and less than a half-inch of snow accumulation is expected.

NWS predicts the freeze will break Saturday as temperatures jump to 41 degrees under sunny skies. Temperatures will dip to 16 degrees overnight.

Sunday will start a trend of above-average temperatures as warmer and drier conditions move in next week. Meteorologists think Sunday should reach a sunny 57 degrees.

High temperatures could be in the mid-60s next week as the calendar turns to March.
