The Denver metro area is 20 to 25 degrees too warm for the middle of December. Typically, Denver sees a high of 43 degrees this time of year. Mid-to upper 60s approached record levels in Denver as the record is 67 degrees in 1917.
The weather will stay well above for temperatures for the next few days, but an increase in high cloud cover should keep readings in the upper 50s to near 60 degrees through Thursday.
We are keeping an eye on a system that could bring us a chance of snow arriving just in time for Christmas Eve into Christmas Day! Temperatures will also drop this weekend with 40s on Saturday and 30s by Sunday.
