Denver weather: Thursday morning snow slows as frigid temperatures fade

Denver began Thursday with temperatures hovering around zero, and when considering the snow the city got overnight, it’s been a blustery start to the day. Over the next 30 or so hours, the mercury of the Mile High City should rise over 50 degrees, making for a nice start to the weekend.

According to the National Weather Service in Boulder, the snow in Denver will wrap up around daybreak on Thursday. Temperatures will rise from around zero degrees and negative 10 wind chill to 31 degrees Thursday afternoon under partly sunny skies.

There is an early morning Wind Chill Advisory for the northern parts of the metro area, meaning exposed skin may become quickly frostbitten or frozen. So cover up because experts say skin could be damaged in as little as a half-hour.

The high country could receive another half-inch of snow, with the hardest-hit areas near Interstate 70 and U.S. Highway 34. Snow will decrease in the evening, but large snowdrifts and blowing snow will still cause hazards.

Friday will be partly sunny with a high of 53 degrees and a low of 25 degrees.

There’s a slight chance of rain and snow before noon in Denver on Saturday, then a slight chance of rain between noon and 4 p.m., followed by a slight chance of rain and snow after 4 p.m. The day will be mostly sunny, with a high near 49. The chance of precipitation is 20%. The low will dip to 16 degrees.
