Though temperatures will jump to the 50s on Thursday, a cold front will bring snowfall starting on Friday and into the weekend.
It's that time of the year that Colorado can't seem to decide which season it wants to be in. Between 50-degree temps one day and a snowstorm the next, Colorado is experiencing what we like to call a "fool's spring." And with the impending snowstorm affecting the Front Range this weekend, we're itching for that warm springtime weather more than ever. (Guess that makes us the fools ...)
And while we will see warmer temps on Thursday, with mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies and highs in the mid-50s, it won't last very long.
According to numerous weather outlets, there will be cold winds with increasing cloud coverage and light rain or snow on Friday afternoon. More snow is in the forecast for Saturday and Sunday, with snow accumulation expected to reach anywhere from 6-12 inches in the mountains and 4-8 inches in the metro area.
For Denver and the Front Range, highs will be in the 30s on Saturday, with Sunday dropping down to the low teens-20s.
These cooler temps will, unfortunately, follow us into the week. An Arctic Blast will hit on Sunday/Monday and temps of zero or lower are possible, with snow flurries throughout the day on Monday.
So, not sure about you, but I will be staying in this weekend and binge-watching Netflix. However, if you do decide to venture out, we've got a list of fun events happening all weekend long in the Denver metro area! Please make sure you take the proper precautions if you do head out and you know what to do should your car get stuck in the snow, just in case.
Are you sick of all this snow? What are your weekend plans? Sound off in the comments below.
