Temperatures hit the mid-70s Wednesday before end-of-week storm

DENVER -- High temperatures on Tuesday have ranged from the upper 60s to the low 70s across the metro Denver area. It has been the warmest day for some areas since late October.

Denver International Airport, the official recording station for the city, reached 70 degrees about 3 p.m., the first time the city has reached the 70s since Oct. 29 -- a span of 148 days.

On Wednesday, temperatures will be even warmer.

Denver's forecast high temperature for Wednesday is 73 degrees. Skies will be mostly sunny with dry conditions and a light breeze.

Changes move in Thursday with a more unsettled weather pattern. Highs will drop to the 60s with isolated afternoon showers and storms.

The next chance for snow on the Front Range will arrive Friday into early Saturday morning.

The city might only see a rain/snow mix, but it is possible there will be light accumulation if temperatures get cold enough.

Better chances for a few inches of accumulating snow will be on the Palmer Divide and in the foothills. More details on timing and totals to come.
