DENVER (CBS) – It should be an interesting week of weather that awaits us. We have both a major warming trend and a chance for snow to top it all off. On the Jetstream weather map, we have a high pressure ridge that retracts for Monday. This should start a warming trend that could bring Denver close to 60 degrees by Wednesday and Thursday.
Temperatures around the Front Range for Monday will be mostly in the 50s for the southern subway areas and 40s for the locations north of downtown Denver.
It can get a little windy in northeast Colorado on Tuesday, with a minor disruption running north of the state through Montana and Wyoming. Our area should remain dry and mild. Except for the wind and a few passing clouds.
Coming on Friday is another combination of a Canadian cold front and a low from the Pacific Northwest, coming together for a good dose of mountain snow and some accumulation over the greater Denver area and eastern Colorado.
It’s too early to give you exact figures right now, but this is your first warning of the danger of snow on Friday afternoons and evenings in Mile High City!
