Warmer weekend ahead for Colorado

DENVER -- We get to enjoy a sun-filled weekend as payback for the blizzard conditions just a few days ago. Saturday and Sunday will be mostly sunny with a light wind. Highs both days will be in the upper 40s to low 50s in Denver.

If you are planning to head to downtown for the St. Patrick's Day parade, make sure to take a jacket and gloves, as it will be a little chilly early in the morning.  The holiday itself on Sunday looks like the "luck of the Irish" is favoring the Mile High City, with sunshine and highs around 50.

Our temperatures next week look mild with readings each day in the 50s along with a few 60s in some spots. We do have the chance for a rain/snow shower during the overnight hours of Monday into Tuesday. That looks to be light.

We have another chance for a rain shower late on Thursday and early on Friday. That could change to a period of snow during the overnight hours. Right now, we are not expecting a big storm nor accumulation. But, this is March and it's Denver's snowiest month, so all chances for rain and snow are watched closely.
