Denver weather: Warmer temperatures on their way back Thursday after rain, snow

Denverites who weren’t too keen on the cold weather arriving early this year can rejoice — the latest cold front appears to be short-lived, as forecasters expected.

It won’t be a return to summer temperatures yet on Thursday, but it will likely be one step closer. Thursday’s forecast calls for a chance of snow and rain followed by partly sunny skies and a high near 55 degrees, according to the National Weather Service. Snow accumulation isn’t expected. Thursday night is predicted to bring a slight chance of rain and a low of about 40 degrees. Minimal snow is likely across the mountains.

Friday’s forecast calls for sunny skies with gusty winds and a high near 72 degrees, before making way for high 70s and mid-80s this weekend, according to the weather service. The mountains and plains could see an increase in westerly winds with gusts getting as high as 40 mph, according to the hazardous weather outlook.

The National Weather Service in Boulder provided a synopsis on Twitter of Denver’s record heat to record snow weather over the past week, noting that Sunday and Monday set record highs and Tuesday tied the earliest freeze on record for the city.
