More mild weather is expected in Denver Wednesday, but the high country west of Denver is getting snow and will be in an avalanche warning through Wednesday evening.
Wednesday will be mostly sunny in Denver, and the high is 52 degrees. Some light winds of five to nine mph are expected in the morning and afternoon with some gusts reaching up to 15 mph.
The evening will start to get cloudy as the low temperature drops to 26 degrees. Winds will still be light in the five to seven mph range.
The mild weather will continue through the end of the week with sunny days in the high 40s and low 50s as far as Sunday.
The central and northern mountains are expected to get about one to three inches of snow during Wednesday’s light snowfall event. Some areas could even get four inches of snowfall, but the main focus in the high country is several areas being in avalanche warnings.
The Gore Range, Vail area, Elk Mountains and West Elk Mountains have “very dangerous” avalanche conditions lasting through Wednesday evening. The San Juan Mountains are in the warning through Thursday morning.
Large and dangerous avalanches can be easily triggered on steep northerly- and easterly-facing slopes at all elevations, and travel in backcountry avalanche terrain is not recommended.
