Denver weather: Slick Thursday commute and possibly more snow coming this weekend

The snowstorm that brought more than seven inches of powder to Boulder and 11 to Larkspur will end Thursday morning.

After a week of brutal cold, with lows bottoming out at temperatures not seen in years, Denver was hit with a storm overnight.

There will be a few lingering snow showers over the higher west-facing mountains slopes this afternoon, and winds up to 50 mph will develop late tonight in the Front Range mountains and higher foothills.

Denver will finally reach its seasonal average of the mid-40s on Friday, with a high of 45. The mostly cloudy morning will clear for sun later in the day before the low drops to 15 degrees.

On Saturday, there will be a 30% chance of snow after noon. The mostly sunny day will have a high around 45. The possibility of snow lasts until midnight, with a low around 18. There is no projection on snow totals yet.
