DENVER — Mild temperatures in the 50s brought a spring-like feel to Denver on Tuesday, a fast-moving storm brought Winter right back Wednesday morning and an oncoming warm front will start turning the feel to summer-like by Thursday.
Light rain showers fell in the Metro area Tuesday night, turned into heavy, wet snow overnight with falling temperatures. By the time Wednesday morning rolled around, the snow had stopped, and most areas got between 1-4 inches of accumulation.
Snow was be heavier near the Foothills, Boulder and the Palmer Divide, which saw anywhere from 3-5 inches.
The Wednesday morning commute is expected to be slushy, icy in spots and slow.
The storm should move out quickly and warm weather is expected to settle back in across the Front Range on Wednesday and Thursday. Wednesday’s high temperatures are expected to push up to 50 degrees, while Thursday’s temperatures could climb as high as 70 degrees.
