Highs pushing to near 60 degrees before snow hits on Saturday

DENVER -- It will be smooth sailing through Friday with highs near 60 degrees in Denver, Boulder and Fort Collins on Wednesday before a Canadian cold front arrives Saturday.

The mountains will be sunny on Wednesday with highs in the 30s. Conditions stay dry through Friday.

On Saturday morning, the cold front appears to stall for a few hours between Cheyenne, Wyoming, and Fort Collins. Then it drops into Boulder and Denver with colder temperatures and snow accumulation.

Expect 1-3 inches of snow across the Front Range with heavier amounts in northern Colorado and in the foothills. Highs will drop into the 20s.

Flurries might linger into Sunday morning before the sun returns and highs climb into the 30s.

It will be dry on Monday, but a storm system could move into the mountains by Thanksgiving.
