DENVER -- A new record low for Oct. 11 was set in Denver Friday morning when the temperature dipped to 9 degrees at the airport. It smashes the old record low of 22 set in 1946.

There will be plenty of sunshine over the weekend. Any leftover snow will quickly melt away Saturday as highs reach the low 60s. On Sunday, we are forecasting a high of 70 degrees in Denver. It'll be great weather for tailgating at the Broncos game.

The weather pattern for next week looks quiet with mainly sunny skies each day through Friday and afternoon highs in the upper 60s to low 70s.

Enjoy the dry days because the next chance for accumulating snow arrives next weekend.
