Big warmup ahead of weekend storm system moving into Colorado
DENVER -- A big warmup will begin Thursday as high temperatures surge to 50 degrees in Denver, Boulder and Fort Collins under sunny skies. The mountains can expect sunny skies and highs in the 20s and 30s. Highs might hit 60 on Friday and Saturday across the Front Range with dry conditions. The next storm system arrives on Saturday night in the mountains. There will be heavy snow accumulations across the Western Slope high country, but not as much across the Continental Divide or to the east.
