Denver weather: Friday warms slightly before another chance for snow Saturday

Denver will rise out of its freeze and into a warm Friday but it won’t last long. A small round of snow could be on the way this weekend.

According to the National Weather Service in Boulder, Denver will be partly sunny with a high of 52 degrees on Friday. Winds could gust as high as 16 mph. The foothills and Palmer Divide will also experience the warm-up, while the northeast plains should hang around freezing. Light snowfall will bring up to two inches to the mountains Friday night, as the temperature dips to clear 25 degrees downtown.

There’s a 20% chance of precipitation on Saturday, with a high of 46 degrees. A rain-snow mix is possible at points, and snow may fall in the evening when temperatures fall into the teens. The skies will be partly sunny in between chances of the wet stuff. Not much accumulation is expected.

The snow will move southeast across the mountains on Saturday, with up to four inches falling. On the prairie, snow will fall mainly south of Interstate 70 and east of Interstate 25. Roads could become hazardous.

Sunday will be dry and begin a trend of dry and mild days. The high for Sunday will be 40 degrees under the sun.
