Denver weather: Flurries arrive before big warming trend hits

One of Houston’s pitchers was wearing short sleeves in Coors Field against the Rockies yesterday. While it could happen again for Wednesday’s game, the ballplayers are jumping the gun on short-sleeve weather, which is coming our way.

Light snow will persist throughout much of Colorado on Wednesday, with the high mountains possibly getting up to 5 inches, according to the National Weather Service.

The foothills could get 3 inches, and anywhere on the plains, including the metro, could receive an inch of accumulation.

Denver will reach 41 degrees in the daytime and drop back to 28 overnight. Early Thursday morning may be Denver’s last below the freezing mark for a while.

Thursday will begin a warming and drying trend as a chance of thunderstorms rolls through with a high of 54 degrees and a low of 34.

Friday will push 58 degrees under partly sunny skies. There’s a 40% chance of thunderstorms with near 20 mph wind gusts expected. The weather should hang into the evening while temperatures drop to 35 degrees.

Saturday and Sunday are shaping up to be near 70 degrees with sunny skies.
