DENVER -- Denver and the surrounding Metro area was treated to some surprise snow overnight, leaving slushy roads for the Monday morning commute and snow removal crews scrambling to get it removed.

That said, the snow accumulation was light – not much more than an inch in most areas – and most of it was expected to be melted by the end of Monday, with high temperatures in the mid to upper 40s expected later in the day.

And despite what was expected to be another chilly evening, with lows near 25, highs on Christmas Eve Day are expected to be warm yet again, with highs topping out around 50 degrees. In fact, it’s expected to be so warm that the slight chance for precipitation on the day would likely materialize in the form of rain, not snow.

Christmas Day will be closer to normal for this time of year, with highs near 45 and slight chances for snow diminishing.

Thursday through Saturday look nice, with Friday being the warmest day with highs in the 50s. The next cold front is expected to move in Sunday and bring colder air and a slight chance of snow.
