Highs Tuesday topped out in the 60s in Denver. Expect big changes starting tomorrow, as a powerful winter storm approaches.

We'll see more rain and snow on the western slope this evening and the wet weather will spread east overnight. There's a chance for a few showers on the plains Tuesday night, but roads will likely be mainly dry for the Wednesday morning commute.

Highs Wednesday will climb to around 50 degrees in Denver. Winds pick up and rain becomes more widespread in the afternoon across the Front Range. We'll see a rain/snow mix for Wednesday's evening commute, and it will likely start to get slushy along the Palmer Divide and in the foothills.

The snow will turn heavy Wednesday night and continue through Thursday. A winter storm watch has been issued for the metro area and mountains. Around 6 to 12 inches of snow is possible in town, with 2 to 3 feet in the foothills and northern Front Range mountains.
