Denver weather forecast today: One more warm day before cold front

Wednesday will be the last day this week of above-70-degree weather before temperatures plummet Thursday.

The high Wednesday is 72 degrees and the day will be mostly sunny. Highs across the area are about 10 to 15 degrees above normal.

Wednesday morning is fairly windy, with gusts reaching 33 mph, but that will taper off to about 9 to 11 mph by evening.

Thursday’s forecast is all but snowy, with a 90% chance of snow in the evening and night. The high Thursday afternoon is only 50 degrees, and the low will be 25 degrees.

Snow accumulation forecasts show anywhere from less than an inch to three or four inches could fall across the Front Range Thursday night into Friday morning.

Warm air and ground temperatures might keep travel impacts low below 6,000 feet. Some slush and ice could form with the wetter and colder forecasts, but forecasters at the National Weather Service said that likely won’t happen until after Denver’s rush hour.

Friday will also be cool, with a 45 degree high and a 29 degree low, but Saturday and Sunday will warm up to the 60s.
