It will also be mostly dry in the mountains, which is a significant change. In most mountain areas it has been snowing daily for more than a week. And while it will be dry with sunnies in the mountains, it won’t be exactly warm when the highs in mountain towns only reach their teens and 20s.
The next storm in Colorado will arrive on Friday and offer a good chance for some mountain cleanup. The best chance for snow in the highlands is on Saturday with an accumulation of 2 to 6 inches in most ski resorts. The Steamboat area could get even more.
In terms of snow in Denver, the chance is lower compared to Wednesday, but quicker snowshots are possible in the subway area in the late afternoon through Saturday evening.
The warmer weather is still on track to finally arrive early next week.
