Denver weather: Strong winds Tuesday, snow Wednesday – The Denver Post

Some storms are working their way into Denver, making for a few active weather days. Temperatures will fall, winds will pick up, and snow should be on the ground all within the next 36 hours.

According to the National Weather Service in Boulder, Denver will top out at 47 degrees under mostly sunny skies. But it may not feel mild, as winds could gust to 44 mph. Those strong winds will spread from the hills and onto the prairies. Wind-prone areas may experience 80-mph wind gusts as snow will begin falling in the high country later in the afternoon. Denver’s low will be 23 degrees.

Wednesday will hit 44 degrees downtown before the weather turns. There’s a 40% chance of snow after 11 a.m. as winds will stay howling with near 30-mph gusts. Only a half-inch of snow accumulation is expected, but once the sun sets, another 2 inches of accumulation could be possible. There’s a 70% chance for snow in the evening, forecasters say. Wind chill values could dip to minus 8 with a low temperature of 3.

Thursday will be partly cloudy with a high of 34 degrees.

Friday kicks off the weekend, which should see highs possibly get into the low 50s.
