Election day weather ideal in Denver, treacherous in the mountains

With mostly sunny skies forecast for Tuesday, Denverites won’t have the weather to blame for not voting on Tuesday.

It’s a much different story in the Colorado high country. It could be tricky making it to the polls on icy roads in mountain towns.

The high temperature will be around 49 degrees in Denver, according to the National Weather Service in Boulder. Clouds will build over the Denver metro area in the afternoon. The low temperature Tuesday night will be around 25 degrees.

Caution is advised for voters in the mountains. Light snow will fall on already icy, slick roads. Hazardous conditions are expected through Tuesday, the NWS says.

A snowstorm will enter Colorado late Wednesday night, the NWS says. There’s a 30 percent chance for snow in the metro area. Less than a half inch of new snow is expected to accumulate by Thursday in Denver.

Snow is possible through most of Thursday morning and then it will become partly cloudy with a high temperature of 36 degrees.

Sunshine will prevail on Friday, and the weekend.

The high temperature on Veteran’s Day on Saturday will be around 52 degrees.
