DENVER — The low Saturday morning was 5 degrees, the coldest temperature for the city since Feb. 21.

With that said, the coldest is behind us for the weekend.

Saturday will have sunshine and will warm to near 40 in the metro areas – near 20 for the mountains.

Sunday will start off in the teens and warm to near 50 in the metro areas – near 30 for the mountains.

Although there will be snow returning to the mountains for Sunday, not much but a couple/few inches here and there, the clouds will increase for the metro areas awaiting snow by Monday; the Broncos game will be in the 40s as clouds increase, but a dry game expected.

Monday, snow is likely around the state, including Denver. Total snowfall will just be enough to cause some slowed travel conditions for those headed out New Year’s Eve. The big story for the New Year will be the very cold start, looking at the planner we see a sub-zero temperature Tuesday morning.
