High near 70 degrees before rain, snow this weekend

Data pix.

DENVER-- It will be near 70 degrees Friday across the Front Range with a downslope warming wind.  The wind will also fan out a mountain wave cloud that will block sunshine.

The normal high today is 52 degrees, and the record high today is 78 degrees set in 1942.

The mountains start partly cloudy then turn sunny with highs in the 30s and 40s.

A storm system arrives Saturday afternoon in the mountains with light snow. It will bring 1 inch of accumulation at the ski areas.  This storm is trending weaker.  Skies will clear into Sunday morning.

We have a chance of rain/snow across the Front Range (mostly snow above 6,000ft, rain below) by Saturday afternoon/evening.  Skies will clear into Sunday morning.

Snow forecast Saturday-Sunday. Meteorologist Chris Tomer.

Sunday goes from sun to partly cloudy, with highs in the 50s.

Monday and Tuesday look dry and warmer in the 60s.

The end of next week turns stormy.  A possible pattern change could deliver two different southern-track storm systems to Colorado.  Stay tuned.
