Denver weather: Weekend cold front brings slightly cooler temps

Denver missed a record high on Thursday but still reached 73 degrees downtown. The extremely warm weather could be turning to something more seasonal in the coming days.

According to the National Weather Service in Boulder, Denver will be cooler on Friday but still mild. The Mile High City will top out at 61 degrees under sunny skies. The low will dip to 33 degrees tonight.

Saturday will be much of the same, with a high of 65 degrees and sunny skies.

The weather will begin to change Sunday, but temperatures will still run above average. Denver should be mostly sunny, with a high of 57 degrees on Sunday. Winds could pick up to nearly 30 mph.

Cooler air will rush in behind Sunday’s wind, making for a stark change to the weather on Monday. Forecasters say the high will dip to 42 degrees to begin the week. As a system moves in, there’s a chance of snow Monday night,

“A few inches of snow can be expected for the mountains, particularly the Gore and Park Ranges, but a lack of moisture and weak lapse rates will limit the snow potential farther east,” David Barjenbruch, a meteorologist at NWS, wrote. “There’s certainly still potential for a few light snow showers making it into the urban corridor and Denver metro Tuesday morning, but accumulations (if any) would be very light. Not feeling too confident on the potential to break DIA’s snowless streak, but the possibility remains.”

Forecasters are already eyeing a second system that could move in late next week as a higher impact event but caution that it’s still too early to know much.
