Denver weather: Warm temperatures, but is Christmas snow on the way?

Denver started the week in the 60s and it will remain in the 60s over the next few days. Winter officially begins Tuesday, so when can we expect a change to be coming?

According to National Weather Service in Boulder, Denver will start Tuesday mostly cloudy before skies clear. The high should be 60 degrees with wind gusts up to 21 mph. Those winds could howl up to 70 mph in the mountains. Overnight, Denver will dip to 30 degrees.

Red Flag Warnings are active for areas around Denver as the wind coupled with low humidity means critical fire danger.

Wednesday and Thursday should be similar weather days to Monday. Midweek temperatures will hit 63 degrees under mostly sunny skies. Winds could gust near 20 mph as temperatures will fall to about freezing. Thursday will be sunny with a high of 61 degrees and wind gusts reaching 20 mph.

Thursday night and into Christmas Eve on Friday is when things could change. There’s a 30% chance of rain and snow with a low around 35 degrees. Friday morning might have precipitation until lunchtime before the sun comes with a high of 54 degrees. If it does snow on Christmas Eve, most of it may not stick, and any that does could melt before Saturday, which also should have a high in the 50s.
