Slight warmup before big weekend changes

DENVER -- Temperatures on Thursday will be about 10 degrees warmer, making it into the upper 40s by the afternoon.

Thursday morning will start with areas of patchy fog, with scattered showers expected throughout the midday and afternoon hours.

Snow showers will continue for the high country as a winter weather advisory remains in place until midnight.

Up to 10 inches of snow will be possible for portions of the high country, including Summit County.

It will be dry and warm on Friday as temperatures make it into the low 60s. But that is still about 5-10 degrees below average, but sunshine will return.

Saturday will start quiet as temperatures make it into the upper 50s, but changes will start to move in by Saturday night thanks to a cold front.

That will drop temperatures quickly and bring the chance for snow on Sunday morning.

Snow showers will continue on-and-off throughout Sunday, with temperatures only making it into the low 30s.

Minor accumulation is possible through the weekend in the Denver metro area, but exact totals won't be known until closer to the storm's arrival.

Next week looks quiet as sunshine remains in place Monday through Wednesday. Temperatures will stay below average, only making it into the 40s, 50s and 60s for afternoon highs.
