DENVER — A new storm is moving into the central Rockies for the rest of the weekend.
Saturday, ahead of the front, we had highs in the low to mid 60s with sunshine in Denver. Clouds moved in for the late afternonon.
A powerful cold front will swing into the Front Range tonight bringing rain and snow for the evening.
A Winter Weather advisory will be in effect starting Saturday night at 8 p.m. until noon on Sunday. The Front Range could see between two to five inches of snow by midday Sunday. Be prepared for icy, slushy roads at times and gusty winds along with the snow.
It will be a cold afternoon for the Broncos Game. If you have tickets, bundle up because temperatures will be in the low to mid 20s at kick off.
Snow will also fall in the northern and central mountains Saturday night and Sunday with four to eight inches possible above 10,000 feet, mainly along and east of the Continental Divide.
By Monday morning, skies will have cleared and temperatures will be very cold. Expect a low in Denver of around 17 degrees with single digit readings in the mountains. By the way, the current record low for Oct. 15 is 20 degrees, set in 1970!
After that cold start to the workweek, conditions will thaw out nicely next week. Monday will only be in the 40s, but Tuesday and Wednesday will be warmer statewide. Expect highs back in the 50s on Tuesday and 60s by Wednesday.
