Nearing 70 on Friday before weekend system brings rain, snow chances

DENVER -- Temperatures will be warming into the middle and upper 60s on Friday for one of the warmer days of the year so far.

Record highs for Friday are in the upper 70s. There will be areas of wind, but pleasant for the most part.

Into the weekend, a storm system will move through the state. This will create some rain and snow chances for Saturday in the mountains and Western Slope, and leftover rain and snow chances early Sunday statewide.

Denver's chance of rain and snow is lower than 10 percent and would be late Saturday into early Sunday.

The system might not bring everyone precipitation, but it will cool temperatures.

Most temperatures will cool 10 degrees on Saturday and another few degrees lower on Sunday. Highs on Saturday in Denver will be near 55 degrees on Saturday in the upper 40s on Sunday.

Next week will be mostly quiet, outside of another weak system Tuesday. There might be some 70s by Thursday.
