DENVER -- A weak cold front will move in overnight that will cool temperatures and bring a chance of morning rain and snow showers.

Denver will start out Thursday in the 30s with mostly cloudy skies and isolated showers.

Showers will most likely be rain or a rain/snow mix in the Denver metro area and snow showers for the foothills, mountains and along the Palmer Divide. Denver has a 10 percent chance of rain.

Showers will be light and will have very minimal accumulation where snow is falling at the highest elevations.
