DENVER -- The seasons are changing and Chief Meteorologist Dave Fraser is uttering that four-letter word in his immediate forecast for metro Denver.
There could be snow in the city when a sharp cold front blasts into the region late Thursday night into Friday morning.
If it does snow in Denver, it will likely be part of a rain/snow mix. No accumulation is expected. The ground and temperatures are still too warm for that.
Cool day forecast Wednesday
"It will start off with some lingering rain showers," Fraser says. "The sunshine will return by the afternoon. But, it will be breezy and cooler with highs only in the mid to upper 60s. We stay in the cool 60s on Thursday as more rain and a few thunderstorms returns during the afternoon."
The cold front Thursday night will "crank up a cold wind," Fraser says. "That front will generate snow in the Colorado mountains. And, we are expecting some of that snow to hit the foothills west of Denver. There is also a chance that snow could mix with rain late Thursday night in the Denver metro area."
"Sunshine will quickly return Friday afternoon, but temperatures will struggle in the 50s. A dry and warming trend takes over for your weekend and early next week."
