Warm weather (although with some gusty chinook winds in and near the foothills) will be in place statewide Thursday and Friday. The mountain snow and valley rainshowers should decrease by Thursday too.
Record highs in Denver and Boulder are not likely, but it’s not out of reach for Friday. The current records on Friday are 72 in Boulder (1962) and 71 in Denver (1951).
A Pacific cold front on Saturday will should bring temperatures back to near-average levels by late Saturday. It should also bring Pacific moisture resulting in more mountain snow and valley rain or snow near and west of the continental divide. For the Front Range urban corridor it does not look like the kind of setup for significant precipitation, but that can’t be ruled out yet. I’ll update on Friday.
