Denver weather: Up to 50s this weekend with slight snow chances Sunday

A moderate weekend is ahead for Denver before a slight snow chance returns to the area Sunday morning.

Friday is set to be mostly sunny with a high of 54 degrees. The plains will likely be cooler than metro Denver and the foothills due to a pocket of colder air over the South Platte River and the deepest snow cover.

According to a National Weather Service forecast, the south side of Denver will reach 60 degrees by 3 p.m. and Fort Lupton will reach 35 degrees, a 25-degree difference across 25 miles.

The colder air pocket could creep southwest in the afternoon toward Boulder, Denver International Airport and the northern Denver suburbs, but it probably won’t reach the middle of the city.

Friday’s low is 32 degrees, and cloud cover will increase overnight before a cloudy Saturday. The high Saturday will still be a moderate 56 degrees.

Some light snow is possible in the high country Saturday as a high-pressure system moves through northern Colorado.

Sunday will see slightly cooler temperatures as a weak cold front passes through the area; the high in Denver is 48 degrees.

Some snow could fall mainly east and northeast of Denver Sunday evening. There’s a 30% chance of snow and rain falling in the city throughout the day Sunday.

Snowfall accumulation still looks light, with only a couple inches possible.

After Sunday, it’s back to relatively dry conditions for a few days.
