It’s already a bit cooler, and a more distinct cold front is north of Cheyenne around noon on Thursday and should move south through the Front Range region from mid afternoon through early evening. Other than the continued snowfall in the high elevations near the continental divide, the cold front is not expected to bring precipitation of consequence to the lower foothills and plains. Most parts of the Front Range urban corridor will stay dry, but there could be some minor snowfall this evening (most models suggest the best chance for that is south of I-70). Be careful if you are heading west over the high passes.
Friday should be a dry and cool day.
Enjoy generally dry and mild weather Saturday and Sunday, but watch for some areas of gusty Chinook winds near the foothills.
The different models have been calling for a switch back to winter by Monday. Some model runs have even suggested a significant snowfall along the Front Range, with others show a rather minor snowfall. For now you should expect Monday to be the cold day of the weekend with at least some snow. I’ll have to re-assess the snow chances as we get closer to Monday.
