DENVER — Most were celebrating a white Christmas on Tuesday. But with temperatures expected to linger below freezing for the rest of the week, the celebrations may begin to give way to shivers.

Meteorologist Chris Tomer expects temperatures in the single digits Wednesday morning. And even after a cloudy day ensues, he doesn’t expects high temperatures to get out of the mid 20s. 

Up next for the state is more snow. Winter Weather Advisories are in place for the Western Slope ski areas Wednesday and Thursday with four to 12 inches of snow expected. That snow could head to the Front Range on Thursday and Friday.

But the chances for snow away from the high country this week are only slight, according to Tomer. The cold temperatures, however, are highly likely.

“We likely going to stay sub-freezing and cloudy for the next three days,” Tomer said. “Right now, expect the sun to return on the weekend, with highs around 40.”
