DENVER (KDVR) — Denver’s weather is going from record-high temperatures this week to snow Friday afternoon and evening.

The main focus is on roads through Friday evening, especially west and south. Most places including metro Denver will have lots of melting and little to measure.

Weather tomorrow: Lingering snow, dry afternoon
There will be a few lingering showers into early Saturday morning before dry conditions return into the afternoon.
Snowfall totals through Saturday morning will be up to an inch — on cooler, elevated surfaces — in metro Denver with roads staying mostly wet.
The foothills and Palmer Divide will see 1-4 inches of snow with slushy roads possible Friday night into early Saturday.
The mountains will see about 2-8 inches of snow.
Saturday’s high temperature will hit the low 50s with some sunshine peeking out in the afternoon and evening.
