Data pix.

DENVER -- It's been a long, cold and record-setting week of snow. The good news: temperatures are expected to slowly climb over the weekend.

We are forecasting mainly sunny skies both Saturday and Sunday with highs in the upper 40s to low 50s. Denver's average high at this time of year is in the upper 50s. So, we will still be running about 10 degrees below normal, but it's better than the teens and 20s of the last week.

We will stay dry all next week with some passing clouds each day. High temperatures will stay in the 40s and 50s until the end of the week when we could reach a high near 60 degrees.
