March comes in like a lamb

DENVER -- Welcome to March, historically Denver's snowiest month. However, the week ahead looks very quiet.

Expect plenty of sunshine on Friday and Saturday. Temperatures will reach the upper 60s both days.

The normal high for early March is around 50 degrees. The record high on Friday is 74 degrees from 2009. The record high on Saturday is 76 set in 1921.

It doesn't look like those records will be broken, but it will be warm and windy.

There is a chance for rain and snow showers, especially late on Sunday. Accumulation looks light with a trace to maybe 1 inch across metro Denver.

The mountains will benefit from the approaching storm with snow totals on Sunday from 4-8 inches.
