Temperatures heat up before big cool down and weekend snow

DENVER -- Tuesday started with thick fog along the Front Range and eastern Plains.

Some spots didn't clear out from the cloud cover or cold temperatures, making for chilly afternoon high temperatures.

Places that were higher in elevation such as the Palmer Divide were able to clear the clouds quickly and hit high temperatures in the 60s.

Some of the cooler air will stick around on Wednesday with high temperatures in the low 40s for Denver.

There will be a big jump to highs in the mid-50s before a cold front brings much cooler temperatures and snowfall starting Friday.

Changes to the dry and seasonal weather pattern will move in on Friday.

Winds will be strong with increasing cloud cover and a chance for snow Friday evening.

Snow showers will continue on and off in waves into Saturday and Sunday. It is still too far out to know exact timing and totals.

Temperatures will cool down dramatically with this weekend storm system. Highs will fall to the 20s on Sunday and Monday.
