DENVER -- We start into a warmer pattern today thanks to winds coming in from a more southerly direction.

Highs are in the low- to mid-30s in the Metro Denver area Friday.

Friday night should not be as cold as previous nights, with lows near 18.

Highs should climb to around 4o mph Saturday, which is closer to the seasonal normal of 45.  More clouds are expected to move in Saturday afternoon. A few flurries are possible Saturday night.

Slightly cooler temperatures set in Sunday with highs near 38.

We have a chance to see some snow showers Sunday night into Monday.

The mountains should see good snow over the weekend. Winter storm warnings are in effect because some areas could see 10 to 24 inches of snowfall this weekend.  Blowing snow could lead to dangerous driving conditions in the mountains Saturday night and Sunday night.
