Denver weather: Scattered showers make for a wet Wednesday

Snow fell at a lower altitude than expected, reaching down to 5,750 feet at times early Wednesday morning. Roads in the metro were wet, with some in the foothills snow-packed, causing a blustery drive Wednesday morning. The cold and damp start is a stark contrast to how this weekend may shape up.

Rain and snow will decrease through the morning hours in Denver with only scattered showers in the afternoon as the temperature reaches 55 degrees, according to the National Weather Service in Boulder. Another 3 inches of snow could fall in the mountains. Denver will cool to 39 degrees overnight. Buckley Air Force Base Airport has reported 0.61 inches of rain through 6 a.m. Wednesday. While it will stay wet, the chance for more severe weather is low.

On Thursday, Denver will be sunny with a high of 66 degrees and a low of 43.

Friday will hit 80 degrees in the Mile High City under mostly cloudy skies; the low will be in the 50s.

Saturday will also push above 80 degrees, and the next storm that brings a chance of precipitation to the area should arrive around Sunday afternoon.
