DENVER -- The city will warm up into the 50s and 60s on Friday with sunshine, but that will be a brief break from chilly and snowy conditions.

By the morning, mostly to partly clear skies will return, with continued clearing to mostly sunny skies in the afternoon. This will allow temperatures to rebound quite a bit.

Consider this warm-up a very brief break from the chill and snow.

Saturday will start with sunshine and warm temperatures, but there will be a quick increase in cloud cover, and rain and snow will return by evening.

This precipitation will be joined by much colder temperatures. As the chance for snow continues Saturday night through Sunday, there will be travel impacts that develop throughout the mountains and possibly in the metro area and Plains.

Accumulating snow looks possible if not likely by Sunday morning that will impact the Broncos game.

After the Sunday snow chance comes a warmer and drier outlook for next week.
